2017 FRITZ HAAG Brauneberger Kabinett 75cl (Mosel Valley, Germany)
Style - Aromatic
Grapes -100% Riesling
Tasting - Just mind blowing how much flavour can be packed into a wine with such little alcohol! You name a fruit it's here. All framed by a smoky notes and creamy textures. Haag never fails to amaze. In this vintage (2017) the style is toward the richer and fuller end of the spectrum with the trademark high acidity of Mosel Valley Riesling in a more subdued, background role. Acid freaks may prefer a bit more 'zip' but the wine is ready to drink earlier than is the case usually.
FYI: For the pernickety 'where in Brauneberg is this from?' crowd the answer is that it's a bit of both the Juffer and Juffer-Sonnenuhr vineyards this year.
