Pure complexity and elegance, this luscious off-dry Riesling layers sweet citrus/orchard fruits against bracing acidity and a deep vein of slatey-mineral acidity. On a super-steep, south-facing Mosel slope, Juffer-Sonnenuhr is among the most narrowly defined Grand Cru (Grosse Lage) sites in Germany. Classic and stunning - taste it, drink it or put it away!

Overview

Riesling

Its Origins

The Haag family has been in wine for just a little while - since 1605, to be precise - and over that time they have been instrumental in the development of Brauneberger, an area that has been recognised as one of the Mosel’s best since the sixth century. At the helm today is the youthful Oliver Haag, whose father Wilhelm (son of Fritz) became recognised as a Riesling world leader, awarded the deceptively simple title of Winegrower of the Year in 1994. Oliver himself has at his back a full oenological training as well as extensive experience with a number of leading Riesling producers. With results so superb they effectively define a modern classic style of Mosel Riesling, it seems clear that the Haag family’s future in wine may be as sure as it’s past.

What The Critics Say

17.5 Jancis Robinson

"Despite its distinctive aromas of peaches and yellow fruit, the fragrance of this Spätlese is tastefully seductive rather than overwhelming. On the palate the Brauneberger takes on a more exotic expression with sweet notes of grapefruit and orange. The acidity is à point, a gentle zesty dash of citrus peel and slightly dusty tang provide a fascinating and long finish. (MS)"
