This remarkable Riesling is intense yet poised, rich yet precise. Effectively a Grand Cru ('Grosse Lage'), huge fruit depth from long ripening, including some noble rot, makes these flavours so complex and concentrated yet rounded. A wine for serious pork or chicken dinners now, or to soften further in the cellar. Deeply impressive and a safe bet in every way - put a couple in the box!

Overview

Riesling

Its Origins

The Haag family has been in wine for just a little while - since 1605, to be precise - and over that time they have been instrumental in the development of Brauneberger, an area that has been recognised as one of the Mosel’s best since the sixth century. At the helm today is the youthful Oliver Haag, whose father Wilhelm (son of Fritz) became recognised as a Riesling world leader, awarded the deceptively simple title of Winegrower of the Year in 1994. Oliver himself has at his back a full oenological training as well as extensive experience with a number of leading Riesling producers. With results so superb they effectively define a modern classic style of Mosel Riesling, it seems clear that the Haag family’s future in wine may be as sure as it’s past.
