Notes from the Winemaker:
Made in the off-dry “feinherb” style, this joyful estate Riesling is a delightful introduction to the wines of Fritz Haag.
The Fritz Haag Estate Riesling is harvested from steep, slate-soil vineyards in the winery’s home village of Brauneberg and in the neighboring village of Mühlheim. It is made in a slightly off-dry style (called “feinherb” in German) that perfectly balances its fine peach and citrus fruit with the typically brisk acidity of Riesling grown in this cool-climate region. This makes it a very refreshing choice to serve as an aperitif, with salty appetizers, or as a partner for lighter vegetable dishes.

THE 2019 VINTAGE:
“The 2019 vintage is characterized by its concise acidity, which provides intoxicating clarity, freshness and elegance in the otherwise dense and profound wines.” — Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, August 2020“The best vintage I have ever tasted for German riesling in my four-decade career. It was a breathtaking experience to discover this embarrassment of riches!” — Stuart Pigott, JamesSuckling.com, September 2020

Ratings & Reviews



92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2019 Riesling is pure, bright and crystal-clear on the precise, floral and finessed nose. Round and juicy on the palate, this is a very delicate and stimulating Riesling in the off-dry style. The wine has enormous grip, and you won't stop longing for it. Absolutely fabulous! 11% alcohol. Tasted from AP 1 20 in April 2020." - Stephan Reinhardt (13th Aug 2020)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Did you say pasta carbonara? Where is the tomato salad? This riesling is such a joyful wine with a ton of white peaches and a dry enough balance. Such a refreshing finish. Drink now. Screw cap." - (September 16, 2020)
