Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Fritz Haag, Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr, Riesling, Auslese, F10, 2016

Fuder 10 is a small parcel selection, made smaller by the early season effects of peronospera, coming from a plot of vines close to the river that perennially achieves great ripeness. Recognisably Auslese in approach, though with less than 5% botrytis in the blend, this has fantastic purity, ample weight, a touch of cream and calm waves of succulent peach and red apple notes. A wine of richness and elegance.

David Schildknecht, Vinous
A fascinating nose mingles sea breeze, intimations of wet stone, and smoky struck flint with high-toned nut extracts, ripe nectarine and mango. The lusciously fruited, creamy, almost weightless palate leads into a sensationally sustained, at once soothing and stimulating finish that left my salivary glands palpitating and that, for all of its sheer richness, not to mention high residual sugar, displays a fascinating array of stony, smoky and saline mineral nuances.

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.
