2020 Mosel Magic from Fritz Haag & Hofgut Falkenstein

Following hot on the heels of the hugely successful 2019 vintage, 2020 in Germany was another landmark year where there were countless outstanding wines on offer. One key difference this year however was the level of delicacy and detail on show, married to the ripe and concentrated flavour that is the calling card of fine German Riesling. The Mosel in particular performed extremely well, especially in the off-dry categories that the region is famous for.

One of the great exponents of these wines is the historic Fritz Haag wine estate located in the heart of the central Mosel River Valley. Owning 18.5 hectares of vineyards planted exclusively with Riesling, Fritz Haag have produced a stunning collection of wines from 2020 where their trademark sense of lightness is fully on show.

Hofgut Falkenstein meanwhile has gradually built up a cult following from those in the know. These are some of the most striking wines from the Mosel, showing electric verve, precise and detailed flavours, incredible complexity and concentration, all in a featherweight frame.
