It wasn't until 1992, when Thomas Haag took over as cellar master and manager, that the property began to regain its notoriety. Before long, Thomas bought the estate out of bankruptcy, gaining full control over the vineyards and winemaking processes. Today, Schloss Lieser is considered one of the top estates of the Mosel. i n the 2015 vintage, Schloss Lieser shines brighter than ever. Thomas' abilities to create some of the top dry wines in the region is only outmatched by his mastery in the categories of Kabinett, Spatlese and Auslese. The style here is focused on the fruit first, with a preference for wild yeast fermentations. The wines are chiseled yet robust with cleansing acidity and a wild mineral component which perfectly contrasts the fruit-focused style of the vintage. ✦ Schloss Lieser Riesling Kabinett Brauneberger Juffer 2015 JG 93+ » $33 "...a superb wine and another beautifully filigreed example... focus and beautifully refined, with a lovely core, zesty acidity and excellent focus...Another very filigreed example."
