Sweeter with less acid but with everything this producer fritz Haag makes I found good acid to offset the sweetness. 45 years old and singing along. Not their best vineyard (in fact some in Germany call it a potatoe field) but nevertheless regal and definitely stood on its own merit. I just wish we had some fois to pair with. @Lee Lightfoot found it delightful on day 3. (From 750ml) — 2 months ago
Perfect lemon rind with bright minerality popping off the tongue — pair it with a buttery sauce, shellfish or any seafood — 18 days ago
I just don’t know. On the fence with this Had this last night. So, while no issues of VA or mouse, it was polarizing; both interesting and also very rustic. It’s a different expression of Mosel Riesling. But having said that, this is his an early vintage for him and I’m interested in the journey on how he develops his techniques over time. As someone who is also constantly refining and focusing each year, I feel that drinking a wine like this leads me to give more thought to it over the years. It’s a very rusty c expression of Riesling but I think its a little more compelling then a lot of similar stuff on the market like this. I loved my fish tacos that I ate with this however.

Deep and dense. Powdery, crystalline mouthfeel of ginger, saffron and rockdust. Sweet candied citrusfruit, yellow flowers, tropical nuances, warm slate and a touch bloodorange bitterness in the back. Lovely acidic backbone. The warm vintage gives this wine its richness, creamy mouthfeel and sweetish midpalate. — a month ago
