Fritz Haag traces its history to the 16h century when the Haag family was already growing grapes in the Mosel region. By the 20th century the family had acquired numerous vineyards and the estate was eventually divided between two sons, Fritz and Willi. Today Fritz Haag is run by Oliver Haag and his wife Jessica. The estate makes numerous Rieslings. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “few Rieslings more successfully marry richness with elegance and finesse.” In 2008 the winery won the top award presented by Gault-Millau, one of the most respected German wine journals.

"For all of its enormous ripeness, this is buoyant, elegant and juicy in the mouth, amazing considering that the fruit was 90% botrytis-affected, and that a high skin-to-juice ratio prevailed even prior to the onset of noble rot... A terrific finish of apricot, honey, subtle pungent smokiness and brown spice caps this remarkable wine. Here is another 2001 where enormous ripeness and extract do not preclude a wine of delicacy, refinement and poise." David Schildknecht
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
