2015 Schloss Lieser-Thomas Haag Lieserer Niederberg Helden Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel, Mosel, Germany
The 2015 (Lieser) Niederberg Helden Riesling Auslese is very clear, ripe and generous on the nose and provided with some cool, crushed stone aromas. Sweet, concentrated and very piquant on the palate, this is a rich and elegant, yet super fresh and racy Auslese. It has a very lush and aromatic finish with lots of grip and tension. Keep it for 10-15 years and enjoy it over decades.
94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This represented largely healthy fruit with just a touch of botrytis and a significant share of berries shriveled from the effects of drying wind. A remarkable cooling, minty overtone to the kiwi, white peach and lime is delightfully complemented by the wine’s combination of luscious juiciness with creaminess. This is another Haag performance so buoyant as to seem almost weightless and impeccably supportive in its well-integrated albeit analytically very high residual sugar. The long finish caresses and soothes while delivering such a wealth of primary juiciness that it outright refreshes, a rare virtue when it comes to Auslese.
