2015 Schloss Lieser Riesling Dry Gg Wehlener Sonnenuhr
"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."
