Wine Review: This very pale straw colored Spatlese level Riesling from Fritz Haag is excellent. It opens with a wet stone and white peach bouquet with a hint of mild petrol. On the palate, this wine is light bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The flavor profile is an Anjou pear and ginger blend with notes of Meyer lemon and pineapple. I also detected hints of white tea, stony minerality and nectarine. The finish is pleasantly sweet, and its flavors and acidity are very extended. This Riesling would pair well with almond macaroons. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: An intensely fruity yet delicate Riesling from fully ripe grapes, made in the moderately sweet Spätlese style. 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 AD. The Juffer Sonnenuhr ("Sundial") vineyard is the choicest center cut of the Brauneberg. This Grosse Lage (grand cru) site produces profound, distinctive wines with great purity and concentration. Spätlese is the German term for "later picking," where extra time on the vine brings greater concentration and depth of flavor.
