THE WINE ADVOCATE - 90 POINTS
The 8% alcohol plus 55 grams per liter residual sugar 2013 Schloss Lieser Riesling Kabinett is a very quaffable Riesling: Read More...
light and delicately racy, lovely piquant and salty as well as juicy but quite pure and stimulating in the finish which is almost drying.

Schloss Lieser has a good market for botrytis wines, so 2013 was finally a good year for Thomas Haag, although hail in August, sunburn and heavy rainfalls in autumn reduced the yields significantly. Dry wines were rare but good in their lean, racy and salty-mineral style. Haag harvested all predicates up to Beerenauslese, but it was a vintage with rigorous selections.

----------------------------
Thomas Haag, the owner/winemaker, has a quiet intensity about him, much like his wines. He doesn’t bow to any popular wine making style; he makes wines his way and in a unique, terroir-driven style. Along with Tim Frohlich of Schafer-Frohlich, Thomas Haag is a rock star in the German Riesling scene. The winery is finally taking its rightful spot atop the Mount Rushmore of great German Riesling producers.

An exuberantly fruity style, with a minerally aroma leading to succulent peach, apricot and ripe pear flavors that feature fat notes of honey cream and spice. All of this is backed up by fantastic acidity so even with the sweetness, it is incredibly refreshing.

THE WINE ADVOCATE - 89 POINTS
Although possessing 30 grams of residual sugar, the Schmitt-Wagner 2007 Longuicher Maximiner Herrenberg Riesling Read More...
Spatlese feinherb still tastes only subtly sweet, thus in some sense justifying its scarcely translatable descriptor “feinberb.” Scents of nectarine, red currant, and sassafras rise from the glass, and on the palate refreshing lime enlivens even as a subtly creamy texture caresses. A juicy, lip-smacking finish of red fruits and lime preserves evinces subtle smoke and wet stone. This extract-rich yet elegant wine should prove highly versatile and delightfully engaging for far longer than virtually any American Riesling lover is likely to hold it, certainly for 20 years.

Septuagenarian Bruno Schmitt has by no means relinquished his sense of duty to the wines that bear his name nor to his precious ungrafted vines in the great but in modern times underappreciated Longuicher Herrenberg, a site the monks of St. Maximins chose in the Middle Ages (along with among others the vineyards of Grunhaus on the Ruwer). But Karl-Josef Loewen of Leiwen – that champion of too little-known Middle Mosel sites – has leased the Schmitt-Wagner estate, and henceforth these two veteran wine growers will collaborate. There is little danger that the Schmitt-Wagner wines will lose individuality, but Loewen envisages the possibility of a separate label for a dry-tasting expression of the Herrennberg in which he might permit his own imagination greater rein, while the label and style associated with Schmitt-Wagner would be retained for the balance of the collection.

A clear, pure and floral-scented bouquet with bright and fresh fruit aromas lead the early picked (October 11), 9% Read More...
alcohol 2012 Zeltinger Schlossberg Kabinett to a sweet, but also very mineral and piquant palate. Bottled with 40 grams of residual sugar this intense, full-flavored and elegant wine finishes salty and piquant and is extremely stimulating, though quite rich for a Kabinett. Drink it as a Spätlese and enjoy!

Additional notes:
The Selbach-Oster vineyards are located on some of the best vineyard land in the heart of the Mosel wine country called " Mittelmosel", where grape vines have been cultivated since the times of the Romans. Due to a very long, temperate growing season, the grapes here mature slowly, producing award-winning Rieslings with elegance, complexity and depth of flavor. Showing the subtlety and fragrance of flowers, yet having an intense mineral quality due to the vinyard's slate soils, Selbach-Oster is known for the taste of delicate fruit and a lingering, crisp finish.

Vineyard site: Zeltinger Schlossberg Steep slope. Medium-grained Devonian slate as topsoil with medium-deep subsoil of decomposed slate mixed with some loam.
