2004 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel, Fritz Haag, Mosel

Unsurprisingly, this is noticeably richer than the Juffer Sonnenuhr
Spätlese and with peach, nectarine and a hint of honey on the nose.
Really exotic on the palate but with the required cut of acidity to
invigorate the senses. The sense of balance between sweetness and
vibrancy is remarkable. Splendid Auslese that is particularly
recommended for those who look for elegance and sophistication in
their Rieslings. Displays a wonderful lightness of touch.

2004 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel, Fritz Haag, Mosel
Weingut Fritz Haag

The vineyards here are no stranger to history: they date back to 1605. The Haag family are the current incumbents, with 17.5 prime hectares entirely devoted to Riesling in Brauneberg (“brown mountain”), the area known for its brown slate along the Mosel. They’ve vines in the two most famous plots here: Brauneberger Juffer and Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr (the area with the sundial, or “sonnenuhr”). The name of the vineyards, “juffer”, dates to the 1790s, a reference to the three “juffers” (“old maid” daughters) who took over from their father at the time. Wilhelm Haag helped put his family’s wines on the world fine wine map, and his son Oliver joined in 2005 to help. With precise winemaking starting with the very clones they select, the Haags have not hesitated to bring new ideas to very old winemaking traditions if it leads to the best, purest wines.
