2013 Schloss Lieser.

TN: 2013 Schloss Lieser Riesling Kabinett, Mosel Saar Ruwer.

My only bottle, big Thomas Haag fan. SC, 8% alc, $40 Cdn, opened one hour. Jancis thought " 2013 was quite high in acid".

Deep lemon color, verging on a light gold. Aromatics flow on pouring..herbal, spice, brief hint of gasolein, "could be lime on the finish" from across the patio. I thought pear very much to the forefront.
Initial entry thought is some sweetness here, tropical fruits dominate but yes the acidity shows itself. Good length, mineral, pineapple, white stonefruits. Vibrant excellent length, lasted 3 days with no downturn. I usually prefer buying trocken style of late but cellar has many bottles like this.
