The Fritz Haag estate is located in the heart of the central Mosel River Valley and has a history dating back to 1605. All 18.5ha of vineyards are planted to Riesling, the excellent micro-climate and deep slate soils of the Brauneberger Juffer slope forming the basis for some of the most intensely flavoured and elegantly-structured Rieslings in Mosel. Winemaker Oliver Haag ranks 2019 as an exceptional vintage producing wines that are ‘dense, powerful, juicy, precise and tensioned but also full of finesse.’
'It is a "Wine of the Year" for me and can hardly be surpassed in its price range.' - Stephan Reinhardt – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
Brilliant very pale straw colour with a distinctive ring of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. Lifted lime, mandarin and red apple aromas have a faint honeysuckle edge followed by notes of wet slate. Intensely flavoured and bursting with an energetic freshness, the palate serves up lime, zesty mandarin and red apple fruits over light honeysuckle, wet slate and flinty mineral characters. Slightly off dry finish with a long zingy aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
In 2019, Oliver Haag has succeeded again in producing an outstanding series of Rieslings, which includes the estate wine with concentration and length that is spectacular in this price range. After all, the grapes come exclusively from steep slopes, premier crus if you like, which are more in the side valleys, are inclined to the south and benefit from the cooling down wind like the Sonnenlay with its fine slate soil. The low yield in 2019 and the mostly old vines provide undreamt-of density and complexity here. It is a "Wine of the Year" for me and can hardly be surpassed in its price range.
The 2019 Riesling is pure, bright and crystal-clear on the precise, floral and finessed nose. Round and juicy on the palate, this is a very delicate and stimulating Riesling in the off-dry style. The wine has enormous grip, and you won't stop longing for it. Absolutely fabulous! Drink 2020-2032.
