    The 2019 Brauneberg Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Trocken GG is very fine, flinty, delicate and charming on the precise and beautifully articulated slatey and herbal nose that also displays highly refined and discreet tropical fruit aromas. However, the nose is remarkably shy at this early stage. On the palate, this is a lithe Juffer Sonnenuhr with great finesse and a pure, mineral, persistently salty and crunchy finish that doesn't show much fruit and power at this stage. This seems to be a rather ascetic yet piquant and salty Riesling, and I am curious how the wine will develop over the next six months. The finish is very long, intense and still dominated by yeasty notes. This will develop to a spectacular JSU with time.

    So ripe yet so vibrant, this marries effortlessly the filigree soul of the Mosel with serious depth and concentration, the mineral acidity lifting you off the ground for a moment, so that you feel you can touch the sky.

    The 2019er Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Trocken GG offers a very delicate and flowery nose of almond cream, yellow peach, smoke, tangerine, candied grapefruit, and herbs, all wrapped into suffused smoke and reduction. The wine is all about finesse on the light-weighted, subtly creamy, and flower-infused palate. It leaves one with a superb feel of herbs, quite some tartness (in need of integration), and a hint of power in the long, broader, and assertive finish. This gorgeous dry Riesling now only a few years of patience for it to integrate its different components.
