LIght and lean, this delicious Kabinett has a nose of ripe lime cordial, lemon and elderflower blossoms, and a touch of red apple, all with a mineral, waxiness to round it out. On the mouth, it has bags of honeyed lemon, with grapefruit and a little lime peel and even a speck of cinnomon spice and wet-stone minerality. The sweetness is perfectly balanced with the acidity. Perfect summer evening drinking.
Producer Information: Schloss Lieser
Thomas Haag took over Schloss Lieser in 1992 and has grown th estate from 6.5 to 25 hectares, owning an impressive range of plots from Brauneberg (Juffer and Juffer-Sonnenuhr) to Piesport (Goldtröpchen and Falkenberg), including Lieser (Helden), Wehlen (Sonnenuhr) and Graach (Himmelreich and Domprobst) as well as harvesting a tiny parcel in Bernkastel (Doktor).
Through brilliant organisation and hard work Thomas and his gifted vineyard manager Philipp Veser have made better wines together every year, teasing out the best of each vineyard they acquire. Their wines are a joy, and they are, incidentally, amongst the most reasonably priced of the Mosel’s great estates.
