One of the great addresses of the Mosel, Fritz Haag, dates way back to 1605 and has been the source for some of the most outstanding wines of the region. Today we have a new release which is an early shot at one of the first 2020s we've been able to get our hands on. One of the top wines from Fritz-Haag, many will recognize the Braunberg Juffer vineyard as one of the great vineyards in the area, and while this is not the Sonnenuhr bottling, this is usually just a hair behind its older brother. Fritz Haag's perfection of this vineyard comes from generations of being the winery's single source for their wines. Fritz Haag calls the Grosses Gewachs here the liquid ambassador to the estate's philosophy. One of the best starting points for this address, the Juffer is always hand-harvested at perfect ripeness and undergoes the most gentle pressing possible, seeing a wild yeast fermentation in 1000 liter barrels and stainless steel tanks. It is a focused, detailed, and complex wine with an incredible play between ripe fruit, spice, wild herbs, flowers, and minerality. 2020 is set to be another beautiful vintage for the Mosel, with wines showing a superb elegance, complexity, and classic structure. We have the only 2020s from Fritz Haag in the U.S. right now and at excellent pricing compared to other vintages, so don't miss this early chance to claim a few bottles!
