Weingut Schloss Lieser Niederberg Helden Riesling Auslese / 2011 / 375mL
The village Lieser is located in the beautiful and impressive scenery of the river Mosel’s valley next to the famous and old city of Bernkastel-Kues. The village’s landmark is the mighty castle “Schloss Lieser”, built in 1875 and inhabited by the Baron of Schorlemer.
In the year 1904 the winery of SCHLOSS LIESER was constructed and it went on to produce some of the greatest wines of the Mosel region. Unfortunately the estate was sold in the 1970s and due to that several changes of ownership led to a decline in quality.
Shortly before the harvest of 1992 THOMAS HAAG became the general manager and cellarmaster and had to face an estate in bad repair and with no established clientele or store of bottled wine.
After buying the estate in 1997 THOMAS HAAG used his long lasting experiences including learning at the establishment of his father Fritz Haag such as at the wine university in Geisenheim. These experiences plus years of hard work brought the estate of Schloss Lieser back to the top of the Riesling estates in Germany.
Combined in this fine selection are fresh tastes of rich noble tropical fruit, mango, and citrus. With an elegance and finese, this wine presents itself with a ripe, juicy acitidy, giving it a perfect unity in high concentration with exhilarating ease.
