2019 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule (375ml)
The 2019 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese (Gold Capsule) is a beauty close to perfection. It displays intense, perfectly ripe, healthy and refined raisin fruit on the nose along with tropical hints, herbal notes and dashes of lemon juice, while the stony/mineral expressions remain rather in the background but still add excitement and distinction. On the palate, this is an incredibly juicy, piquant, refined, salty and weightless yet intense Riesling with concentrated but highly stimulating fruit. The finish is long and amazing in its sensual finesse and elegance. This is a digestible, concentrated and energetic Auslese that comes very close to perfection.
Stephan Reinhardt - Wine Advocate (Aug 2020)
Here are some of the most seductively fragrant flowers on Planet Wine. Yet, this enormously concentrated Auslese moves over your palate as if it were almost weightless. Dream on now, or any time during the next couple of decades.

The 2019er Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese GK was made from partially botrytized grapes harvested at 120-125° Oechsle and was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a most captivating nose of botrytized fruit as scents of mango, passion fruit, honeyed peach, dried apricot, pineapple, whipped cream, herbs, and smoke. The wine proves gorgeously unctuous and creamy on the fully sweet and creamy palate. A touch of power and a feel of intensity are brilliantly wrapped into magically focused and zesty elements in the finish. The persistence and aromatic purity are just stunning. This noble-sweet needs more than a full decade to integrate its richness and fully show its full nuances, but the patience will be rewarded.
