2020 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese
A super-filigree Mosel Auslese that impresses with fabulous delicacy and precision. So much vanilla-bean character, but also tropical-flower aromas. Beautifully integrated grape sweetness at the long, very refined finish. Drink or hold.

The 2020er Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese, as it is referred to on the consumer label, was made from clean fruit and was fermented down to fully sweet levels of residual sugar. It immediately captures one’s attention with its superbly fresh and animating nose of lemon, fresh pineapple, herbs, grapefruit, spices, floral elements, cassis, greengage, and vineyard peach. The wine reveals some creamy pear, yellow peach, and nuances of honeyed yellow fruits on the smooth and fruity palate but reveals a more filigreed, zesty, and hauntingly smooth but also smoky side in the finish. The aftertaste is magnificent persistent and full of energy. This outstanding and gorgeous Auslese needs at least a decade to integrate all its elements, but patience will be rewarded. Drink 2030-2060.
