2018 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese

SKU #1454179 96 points James Suckling

 The amount of clarity that oozes from the nose is mind-boggling. Spring water cascades down a waterfall into a pool of steaming volcanic rocks, the mist carrying scents of kaffir-lime tree and tea tree oil. Unfathomable purity and precision on the palate, which, though only medium body, is deep and rich in flavors and minerality. The sweetness is almost seamless. Drink now or hold for a long time.  (10/2019)

95 points John Gilman

 The 2018 Juffer-Sonnenuhr Auslese is one of my absolutely favorite wines in the cellar this year, as again, there is no botrytis here and the wine is a legend in the making. The brilliant bouquet soars from the glass in a blaze of lime, pear, violets, a hint of the yellow plum to come, salty soil tones, honeycomb and a vibrant topnote of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is pure, refined and fullish in profile, with a creamy core of fruit, excellent acidity and grip and a very long, very precise and beautifully mineral-driven finish. This is stunning juice! (Drink between 2025-2075)  (4/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

 Expressive, showing great tension between the candied berry and citrus flavors, accented by a vibrant structure and embedded minerality. Impressive, but the intensity is almost too strong at the moment. Needs time to unwind, but the elements and complexity seem to be packed and ready to emerge. (AZ)  (1/2020)

K&L Notes

95 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 06 19. The 2018er Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese AP06 was made from clean fruit harvested at above 95° Oechsle, and was fermented down to fully sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a beautiful nose made of starfruit, white peach, pear, greengage, whipped cream and grapefruit, all wrapped into smoke and green herbs. The wine proves delicately creamy and superbly multi-layered on the palate. A gorgeous touch of ripe zest brings focus and playfulness to the long and refined finish. The racy side takes the upper hand in the incredibly engaging after-taste. What a beautiful Auslese! 2028-2058." (4/2019)
