    Fritz Haag, Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr, Riesling, Auslese, Goldkap, F12, 2015

    Of the two Goldkapsuls the Haags produce, the Fuder 12 is built for the long haul, initially reserved but slowly revealing a very pure complex botrytis character on the nose, with a sleek yet dancing shape in the mouth, all luscious fruit backlit by acidity. The complex slate notes come through on the finish, almost obscured by the complex yet tightly wound ripe apricot and honeyed peach notes. For such an intense, powerful wine, this long and lifted Goldkapsul represents near perfect harmony.

    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.
