Schloss Lieser

A once historic estate with 100 acres under its belt, found its way to a slow decline, down to 6 acres until being taken over by Thomas and Ute Haag. They have slowly revived the vineyards, quality and reputation to its former glory, including purchasing and leasing 185 Grosse Lagen or "Grand Cru" sites. They are working on farming everything organically with the help of their two children, Lara and Niklas. Winemaking is long and slow and reductive, with spontaneous fermentation, and no fining or filtering, preferring to wait as long as need be for racking to give the purest expression of site.

WE 93
"Loads of pink grapefruit, lychee and peach are rimmed by a margarita-like edge of salt and lime here. While spry and invigorating, it's a sunnier expression of spätlese than the producer's Niederberg Helden bottling. Bold strikes of smoke and struck flint lend gravitas to the finish. Delicious already but it's likely to improve through 2026 and further." -ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA
