The Mülheimer Sonnenlay is the largest single vineyard in the Max Ferd. Richter estate. The ‘Sonnenlay’ (sunshine and slate) is situated in a valley adjacent south to the river. Read More...
Up to the last ice age that was the original bed of the Mosel river. The Sonnenlay mountain is facing west - south west. This specific wine originates from the part called “Johannisberg”, presenting the best part of the mountain.

This 2002 Riesling Spatlese Trocken is ageing beautifully with great complexity and depth. Bright, clear structure of ripe yellow fruit, faint petrol aromas, clearing and giving way to fresh peach flavors, good acids, and pure slate stone minerals on the palate, backed by good weight and a refreshing, long finish.

The 2014 Mülheimer Sonnenlay Riesling 'Zeppelin' gets its name due to the fact that wines from this vineyard were served on the luxurious Zeppelin airships in the 1920's and 1930's. Today, it'Read More...
s to be found in Queen Elizabeth's cellars and is served on state occasions. Mülheim Sonnenlay is a steep single vineyard facing southwest-west with slate stone and clayloom soil. The wine delivers pretty aromas of ripe lemon, sweet peaches, white floral, wet stones and some spicy herbs. It has a gorgeous texture with just the right touch of acidity for balance. This is a flat out delicious Riesling, not to mention amazing value.

This wine rocks! In the postmodern era, in our opinion, anything with a zeppelin on it should have a certain amount of, pardon my verbal crudité, "kickassness." This Riesling more than qualifies because it is '...the wine most often poured during the flights of the Zeppelin.' And it's very good wine; but first the history lesson: "The winegrowers of Mülheim on the Mosel were able to make this proud boast about their Riesling from the Mülheimer Sonnenlay vineyard during the ´twenties and ´thirties. From this, Mülheim gained its reputation as Zeppelinwein. Today wines from Mülheim are still marketed with the Art Deco Zeppelin label, a reminder of the days when the Zeppelin crossed the Atlantic and passengers relaxed in its luxurious restaurant sipping this delicious Riesling."

The nose is a beautiful meshing of orange marmalade, apricot preserves, peach syrup and just a touch of orange blossoms and sweet spice, muscat. The palate is unctuous and luxurious, fruit-filled and incredibly, viscously rich; but it has plenty of underlying acidity to keep it clean and not stuck to the roof of one's mouth. Flavors of white pêche, mixed stone fruits, a touch of river rock and light, sweet spice lead to a sweet, satisfying finish. Simply lovely wine. Seafood, shellfish and sushi come to mind with this; maybe spicier Thai dishes. You might ultimately seek more acidity with your fatty seafood wine, but the flavors mesh quite well.

Do you come from the land of the ice and snow? Got a spare hammer of the gods ready to drive your ship to new lands? This Riesling will help get you there in style.

ANTONIO GALLONI - VINOUSMEDIA - 91 POINTS

Savory aromas of dried apricot, blackberry and nut oil, with something smoky behind it all. Read More...
Dense berry fruit with finely polished minerality animate the palate. Elegant, lively and spicy on the alluring finish, this wine is only beginning to show its pedigree. It is certainly one of the two or three finest dry Rieslings of the vintage on the Mosel.

“I hope I don’t have to see another vintage like 2013 anytime soon,” said Thomas Haag at Schloss Lieser as we tasted a few older vintages this past November. Hail laid part of the vineyards to waste in the early summer of '13, followed by rain and botrytis at harvest. “It was a nightmare scenario,” he added. Not surprisingly, his selections were so rigorous that what little wine he had left after crush was sold out before bottling. What Haag managed in 2013 borders on the miraculous, for from his dry Grosses Gewächs to his ethereal Spätleses and sublime Ausleses, he arguably made the best Rieslings of the vintage in all of Germany. I rated 12 of the 16 wines I tasted at 90 points or higher, and two of them were the best Rieslings in their respective categories. Yes, under the Freiherrn von Schorlemer, Schloss Lieser was once a famous estate, but its star had long since waned. Almost single-handedly, and in less than 20 years, Thomas Haag has kissed it back to life. It is difficult to do online, but that alone deserves a round of applause. And his 2013s merit a standing ovation.

WINERY - "We have precious little of Haag's Niederberg Helden GG this year. And that's really painful. The wine is outrageously good."
Over the past couple of decades Thomas Haag has proven himself to be one of the Mosel's top talents. His dry Rieslings are some of the regions best.
The 2013 Niederberg Helden GG consolidates so many of the qualities that have propelled him to the top and caused John Gilman to call Schloss Lieser "very clearly one of the greatest estates in Germany today."

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.

700 liters (instead of 70 liters like in several other estates) have been made of the 5.5% alcohol 2013 Lieser Niederberg Helden Riesling Beerenauslese, which reflects a stringent botrytis selection both in the vineyard and again in the press house and turns out to be one of the Best Buys of the 2013 vintage. The noble sweet wine offers ripe and cooked peach aromas on the nose leading to an enormously sweet but also extremely delicate, precise, piquant and finesse-filled palate. And in 2010, botrytis concentrated acidity to beyond Eiswein parameters also in 2013.

From 100-year-old vines in a densely planted parcel of the cru, the 2012 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese Read More...
Halbtrocken Ur-Alte Reben was picked the last day of October and offers a rich but subtle, stony bouquet with aromas of wax, flint, peaches, nectarines and wild herbs. Lush and elegant on the palate, this full-bodied wine has loads of finesse and is superbly balanced and intense in its juicy and sweet fruitiness. This is a blockbuster, 12% alcohol and 23 grams per liter residual sugar Spätlese with great aging potential, although it is already extremely enjoyable.

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, Pre-phyloxerra vines
Steep slope. Medium-grained Devonian slate as topsoil with medium-deep subsoil of decomposed slate mixed with some loam.
