Description

There are no German wines more elegant than those of Weingut Fritz Haag. They do not shout, and are often overlooked in favour of more showy bottles, but for balance, finesse and subtlety they are hard to beat. With a pedigree like this, it’s no surprise that the wines have a fantastic ability to age.

The 2019 GG has the gentlest of starts: inviting, juicy ripe pear and yellow stone fruit, gradually builds in intensity as fine smoky dark mineral structure begins to appear, finishing on a long, perfectly balanced salty note. A harmonious, elegant joy.

Producer Information: Weingut Fritz Haag

The wines of Weingut Fritz Haag do not shout, and are often overlooked in favour of more showy bottles. But for balance, finesse and subtlety they are hard to beat. With a pedigree like this, it’s no surprise that the wines have a fantastic ability to age.

The estate owes its greatness to Wilhelm Haag, who started in the late 1950s, crafting beautiful wines from the Juffer, and its heart, the Juffer-Sonnenuhr, where vines are clustered on a dauntingly steep and rocky slope around the sundial (or. in German, 'Sonnenuhr'). His younger son, Oliver, took over the family estate in 2005 and his wines have an understated subtlety that becomes increasingly apparent as the wines age.
