Schloss Lieser Thomas Haag SL Riesling Trocken 2016 (750ml)

The 2017 SL Trocken is about as fine an estate Riesling bottling as one could ask for and will be an excellent value in this vintage. The wine offers up a quite refined nose of apple,. lime, a touch of mossiness, wild yeasts, a lovely base of slate and a topnote of citrus peel. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and nicely complex, with a good core, ripe acids and lovely focus and balance on the long and classy finish. This is really, really good entry level wine! 2018-2030+. - John Gilman, View From A Cellar

Thomas Haag, the winemaker at Schloss Lieser since 1992 and its owner since 1997, is also the brother of Oliver Haag and son of legendary Wilhelm Haag at the Fritz Haag estate, one of the most illustrious names in German winemaking. Thomas is now clearly operating at the height of his powers, winning near-universal acclaim for his idiosyncratic yet decisive Mosel wines. Cleaving to a natural approach in the vineyard and the winery, he insists on painstaking hand-harvests, spontaneous fermentations, and long, slow, reductive elevages. His newfound collector’s mania for acquiring parcels of the best sites of the region is transforming Schloss Lieser from a small “up-and-coming” property into one of the most formidable wine estates in Germany.

This Riesling has approximately 23 grams of residual sugar and 8 grams of acidity, making the wine just barely sweet and fruity, showing pretty peach notes and a soft, round mid palate. This is an excellent summer wine and incredible value. A fantastic introduction to they crystalline nature of Mosel wines.
