Fritz Haag 2019 Riesling Estate Trocken, Mosel, Germany, Rheingau, Germany
The legendary Fritz Haag estate owns 17.5 ha (43 acres) in the heart of the central Mosel River valley. The excellent exposure and the deep slate soils of the Brauneberger Juffer slope form the basis for some of the most intensely flavored and elegantly-structured Rieslings of the Mosel region. Oliver Haag, the current proprietor, produces wines that cover the full style spectrum, starting from dry to lusciously sweet. The estate was founded in 1605.
Winemaker: Oliver Haag
Terroir / Soil: Located in the Mosel River valley, the Fritz Haag estate is in the village of Brauneberg, a few kilometers upstream from Bernkastel. The fruit utilized to make up the Estate Trocken hail from the following estate vineyards: Brauneberg, Burgen, and Mühlheim. Devonian slate rules the vineyards.
Vinification: The grapes for this wine are picked by hand and fermented spontaneously in large wooden barrels and stainless steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: Aromatically the wine is immediately tropical fruit driven with notes of pineapple and mango, and in the background there is a light scent of slate. The palate is medium bodied, very dry, and acid driven with juicy fruit flavors alongside intense flinty, wet rock nuances.
