    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Schloss Lieser, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Riesling, Spätlese, 2016

    Again that glorious impression of sunshine, such a defining feature of the wines emanating from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard, with an almost perfumed fragrance leading to a palate of sun kissed peaches. So fine, so elegant, this is a Spatlese of the purest silk and probably the most refined Spatlese in Thomas's growing range.

    7%
    92/100
    David Schildknecht, Vinous
    Overripe apple and Persian melon are garlanded in honeysuckle and lily. Luscious but decadent fruitiness and heady florality dominate on the buoyant, glossy palate as well. The wafting, delicate yet impressively persistent finish harbors just enough primary juiciness to refresh and to encourage the next sip.

    Schloss Lieser

    This Estate is one of the new stars of the Mosel that in Thomas Haag (son of Wilhelm at Fritz Haag), has one of Germany’s brightest up and coming winemakers. His prime plots of land are in the top due south-facing Niederberg Helden vineyard of Lieser. Though just a few hundred metres from his father’s Brauneberg vineyards, the heavy thicker set grey/blue slate of the Helden vineyard produces heavier wines that sometimes require more initial bottle bottle age before showing their true colours. Rigorous work in the vineyard and microscopic attention to detail in his cellars, guarantee a consistent production of good wines in poor years and outstanding wines in great years. In fact, Thomas can regularly claim to have the Mosel’s lowest yields. Since 2004, Thomas has been exploiting some vines in the famous Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr vineyard, given to him by his father Wilhelm Haag of the Fritz Haag estate.
