Discover a Temporal Delight from Mosel’s Esteemed Producer: Fritz Haag

Prepare to immerse yourself in the enchanting world of German winemaking as Fritz Haag unveils their latest masterpiece, the Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Spätlese Grosse Lage 2021. Set to launch on May 12th, this limited release comes from one of Germany’s most revered estates, nestled in the breathtaking Mosel region. Considered an icon in the industry, Fritz Haag is held in high regard by experts such as Stephan Reinhardt, the esteemed wine writer for Robert Parker The Wine Advocate.

Steering the helm of Fritz Haag is Oliver Haag, a visionary winemaker who took charge in 2005 as the third-generation representative. Alongside his wife, Jessica, Oliver oversees the estate’s 19 hectares of vineyards, exclusively dedicated to cultivating the finest Riesling grapes. Nestled in Brauneberg, a region renowned for its viticultural prowess, Fritz Haag’s vineyards occupy some of the steepest slopes in the world, boasting inclines of up to a staggering 80 degrees.

The crown jewels of Fritz Haag’s portfolio are the Grand Cru vineyards, Juffer and Juffer-Sonnenuhr, which Napoleon himself dubbed “Mosel’s pearls” centuries ago. Here, the Mosel River, the precipitous slopes, and the soil rich in local devonian slate collaborate harmoniously to create an unparalleled microclimate, unparalleled anywhere else on Earth.

Derived from the local dialect, “Juffer” translates literally to “virgin,” paying homage to the vineyard’s history. Dating back to 1790, when the vineyard’s proprietor, Wunderlich, had three unmarried daughters, Brauneberger Juffer is a sun-drenched south-facing slope. Its soil, a composition of loose and delicate earth with an abundance of weathered blue slate, has an innate ability to retain the sun’s warmth. Additionally, the Mosel River acts as a natural reflector, further enhancing the region’s radiant heat. This harmonious interplay of soil, river, and microclimate forms the cornerstone for crafting exquisitely refined, vivacious, and fruit-forward Riesling wines.

Fritz Haag’s wines are renowned for their unrivaled purity, wherein vibrant fruit expressions, invigorating freshness, and unmistakable mineral notes intertwine effortlessly. Regardless of their classification, each wine from Fritz Haag possesses an extraordinary capacity to mature gracefully over time, becoming even more captivating with age.

To produce the Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Spätlese Grosse Lage 2021, a meticulous process unfolds. Gentle pressing and fermentation take place in stainless steel tanks, utilizing the power of natural yeast strains. The wine is then allowed to rest undisturbed, embracing the lees that develop from the spent yeast cells, before being bottled with minimal filtration and no prior clarification. This meticulous approach ensures the purest expression of the wine, preserving its essence and highlighting the remarkable terroir of the Mosel region.

Oliver Haag, a true visionary, believes that this remarkable vintage boasts an aging potential that surpasses 20 years. As you savor each sip of this extraordinary wine, let yourself be transported on a journey through time, relishing in the artistry of Fritz Haag and the inimitable allure of Mosel’s winemaking heritage.
