A fruit-sweet kabinett is a wine that best reflects the strengths of the Moselle - lightness, spice, a charming residual sugar balance. Flintstone, floral flower notes and juicy fruits on the palate are perfectly rounded off by the fresh acidity. Read more..
2020 Brauneberger Riesling Trocken “J”
A finely structured dry Riesling that blends the distinctive
characteristics of this legendary estate’s two Grosse Lage vineyards.
The terrifyingly steep Brauneberg hillside has been revered as a top vineyard site since the
Romans first cultivated wine grapes in the Mosel valley in the second century. The Juffer vineyard surrounds the smaller Juffer Sonnenuhr on three sides, extending both upstream and downstream along the steep slope, as well as above the sundial. This dry wine is a cuvée of 75% Juffer
and 25% Sonnenuhr. A brief maceration is used to soften the brisk acidity before fermentation. It
is lively and focused, with pure, clear fruit aromas and vivid citrus intensity on the palate.
THE FRITZ HAAG ESTATE
The Fritz Haag estate is a historic family winery that dates back to 1605. The Haag family farms 17 hectares (42 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 mineral “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 2020 VINTAGE
The 2020 growing season began mild, as usual, although with more preciptation than in recent years. But by early
March the temperatures had begun to rise noticeably, hovering around 20°C at the beginning of April. Fortunately,
we came nowhere near the peak temperatures of 2018 or 2019, and the vines are slowly adapting to the warmer
weather, year after year. We were relieved to see them taking advantage of their deep roots to maintain reliable
access to water. We are especially enthusiastic about the elegant, classically styled Kabinett and Spätlese we
produced this year, with a few precious gems in the nobly sweet Prädikats.
