2018 Fritz Haag, Brauneberger Riesling Kabinett, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany (750ml)
Fritz Haag is a top notch Mosel producer that we have supported for many years. According to the importer, this delicious Riesling Kabinett is "a selection of early-picked fruit from both the Juffer and Juffer Sonnenuhr vineyards.
The Brauneberger Riesling Kabinett has a very fine, delicate structure and pure, enervating fruitiness that exemplifies the Fritz Haag style. The steep Brauneberg hillside has been revered as a top vineyard site since Roman times. It was the Romans who first cultivated wine grapes in the Mosel valley. In their day they called this hillside “dulcis mons”, which is Latin for “sweet mountain” and is the origin of the old village name, Dusemond. With meticulous vineyard and cellar work, the Fritz Haag estate produces wines that combine the typical Brauneberg power with astonishing clarity and a sophisticated sleekness.
