Oliver Haag of the Weingut Fritz Haag estate tells JANCIS ROBINSON MW that Germany's 2005s 'combine the minerality of 2004 with the body of 2003' and she is the first to agree. 'Most 2005s are looking so delightfully bright now that they make the 2004s, which seemed so impressively classical and finely etched a year ago, appear rather surly when tasted alongside,' she comments. This is the result of a near-perfect growing season, she continues, and although she hasn't turned her attention to an in-depth tasting yet, 'what is already on show is a very convincing herald of what promises to be one of Germany's most glorious vintages'.
