    Fumy aroma of spontaneous fermentation undergirded by grapefruit zest. Stony, mineral complexity. Utterly pure on the palate, sweet creamy citrus, ripe, pure lemon like candied lemon peel. Viscous smoothness in the mouth but that is cut through by the freshness. Essence of pure Riesling with a lot more complexity to come. Drink 2022-2032.

  • David Schildknecht, September 2019, Score: 92

    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. Drink 2020-2038.

Producer

Schloss Lieser

Bright, energetic, and crystalline are three words most often used to describe the celestial Rieslings of Schloss Leiser. Yet this beautiful estate in the village of Lieser was not always associated with light-footed, terroir-driven Rieslings. After a period of decline in the 1970s, the then defunct Schloss Lieser was bought by Thomas Haag, the son of winemaker extraordinaire Wilhelm Haag at Fritz Haag in the 1990s, turning it into the Mosel’s greatest success story. Thomas has acquired more vineyards over the years and now cultivates 25 hectares in the Mosel’s finest vineyards, including in the villages of Brauneberg (Juffer and Juffer-Sonnenuhr), Piesport (Goldtröpchen), Wehlen (Sonnenuhr) and Graach (Himmelreich and Domprobst). Incredibly low yields are standard at Schloss Leiser, such is Thomas’ meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard, with strict selection and hand harvesting. Using solely old wooden barrels or stainless steel, Thomass carries out a slow, cool fermentation under natural yeasts. Electrifying to the senses and exquisitely classical in their structure, these are fantastic Rieslings that can go the distance.

Region

Mosel

The Mosel's terroir is exceptional, composed primarily of grey-blue and red slate that climb up totremendously steep cliffs - the steepest vineyards in the world to be exact. Due to the Middle Mosel's lack of soil paired with its incredibly good drainage, most of the vines are not graftedonto American rootstocks as phylloxera cannot survive. As a result, the vines grow exceptionally slowly creating wines that tend to be wonderfully pure, tender and focused.
