2018 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese

SKU #1454178 95 points John Gilman

 Oliver Haag’s 2018 Juffer-Sonnenuhr Spätlese was clearly one of the finest examples of this Prädikat that I tasted during my ten day visit to the region and I cannot recall ever tasting a better young vintage of Spätlese from this estate! The brilliant bouquet soars from the glass in a youthful blend of lime, pear, gorgeous, very salty slate minerality, violets, bee pollen and an exotic touch of fresh mint in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, laser-like and tensile, with beautiful complexity and filigree, snappy acids, perfect balanced and outstanding lift on the very, very long and utterly refined finish. Brilliant juice. (Drink between 2019-2060)  (4/2019)

95 points James Suckling

 This is a very sexy riesling with immense minerality in the way of cloves, flint and dried spices. So much citron and orange-blossom character. Wonderfully dense yet elegant with cut-throat acidity and gliding, citrus and stone flavors. The slight off-dryness is so cleverly worked into this sleek package. Drink now.  (10/2019)

K&L Notes

95 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 07 19. The 2018er Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese was harvested at 92° Oechsle and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a beautifully engaging nose made of white peach, pear, whipped cream and floral elements. The wine is superbly balanced on the multi-layered palate, where juicy orchard fruits are wrapped into some ripe but zesty acidity. The wine proves incredibly long and hugely engaging in the elegant and playful finish. A hint of apricot blossom rounds off the pleasure to enjoy this stunning wine which reminds us the Estate’s magical fruity-styled wines from the 1997 vintage. What a great success! 2028-2068."
