Tasting Notes


ABV:
12.5 %

Notes

Whispers of the Juffer. What a wonderful, effortless feel. There is a delicate intensity here which sits on the fulcrum of fulsome fruits and a river-like purity. Animated, full of life, the 2022 Juffer GG swings with pronounced violet, citrus and lavender notes, which are all kept in check by a sophisticated reduction that draws the taster in. Aging is carried out in German fuder.

Notes
The 2022 Riesling Brauneberger Juffer Grosses Gewächs site frames the Sonnenuhr and thus spans the slope from the river to the top. The shy nose has the merest sheen of citrus with just a glimpse of peach. The austere palate is stony and textured, first showing pith. Serene juiciness follows, still tightly coiled, with a touch of salty savoriness. Gradually, the palate becomes creamier, wonderfully serene and harmonious. Somehow, this seems naked; its tightness seems to relax in order to show inherent elegance. Exquisite. (Bone-dry)

Fritz Haag

Fritz Haag

Weingut Fritz Haag has for decades been in the top tier of quality German wine production, thanks largely to efforts of the late, legendary Wilhelm Haag, who headed up the Mosel VDP for nigh-on twenty years. Run by son Oliver Haag since 2005, he manipulates the exceptional stony grey/blue slate vineyard of the Juffer in Brauneberg, the finest part of this being a large parcel surrounding the sun dial (Sonnenuhr). Depending on the vintage, he employs a varying mixture of wooden fuders and temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks, the former helping complexity and finesse, the latter preserving freshness and intensity. These are some of the most elegant, pure and enticing wines in Germany.
