    Black tea, brown spices, sassafras and baked apple set the aromatic theme here. Creamy on entry, this quickly shows its fine teeth of citricity, setting up a fascinating counterpoint. For all of its baked-in richness, there is still a lovely sense of delicacy, enhanced by a subtle spritz of CO2. The finish is billowing and elegant. |I think this is my favorite Auslese today,| says Haag, |because it is so very Mosel.| 2 stars.

    Wednesday, December 22, 2010 - A nice bottle of wine. The acidity and sweetness were well balanced. We let it sit in each glass for about half an hour before drinking as there was a generous amount of sulphur still present. This blew away though and exposed a nose with sweet ripe peaches, star fruit, and lychee (?). The most prominent taste was ripe pears poached in a sugar and honey glaze. The sweetness was not overwhelming or over the top though. The finish was not that long and leaned towards the acidic or sharp. This was the weakest part of the wine. We had this with homemade red curry grilled chicken in a coconut and lemongrass sauce.

Four centuries of vine-tending and winemaking run through the veins of Wilhelm and Oliver Haag. Their family has been tied to the village of Brauneberg, on the Mosel, since 1605. Key to the family's estate holdings are the Juffer vineyard, and especially the central portion, known as Juffer Sonnenuhr. This site in the middle of the vineyard provides the perfect micro-climate for Haag's exceptional Rieslings. The slate, stony soils sit in a bowl-like depression in the dauntingly steep hillside, which encourages heat retention and fosters riper fruit. In 2004 Wilhelm Haag passed the winemaking reins at this high quality, low production estate on to his son Oliver, who is now regarded as one of the best winemakers in Germany.
