About This Item

Overview: The Fritz Haag estate is a historic family winery that dates back to 1605. The Haag family farms 29 hectares (72.5 acres) of vineyards in the heart of the Mosel Valley. They produce only Riesling, covering the full style spectrum, from dry to lusciously sweet. A intense “slate” character and a pronounced, fruity acidity give the wines their elegant sophistication and their great aging potential. The estate’s graceful, well-defined Rieslings are universally lauded as examples of the finest wines the Mosel region has to offer.

The Fritz Haag Estate Riesling Trocken is harvested from steep, slate-soil vineyards in the winery’s home village of Brauneberg and in the neighboring villages of Mühlheim and Burgen. It balances naturally brisk Mosel Riesling acidity with excellent concnetration, a delicate texture and an ultra-fine fruitiness.

Tasting Notes:Whiffs of plump white peach and pineapple on the nose contrast the steely intensity of this totally dry, profoundly mineral Riesling. Focused and gorgeously angular in style, it's a refreshingly svelte but concentrated expression of an intensely ripe vintage. 

Pairing: A perfect choice for a variety of shellfish dishes, and is especially ideal as a partner for briny, cold-water oysters.

Points:91, James Suckling

Format / ABV: 750 ml/11.5
