Fritz Haag, 2015 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese

"The 2015 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is still pretty reductive, but very clear and flinty, provided with a ripe and concentrated, very finessed Riesling flavor intertwined with stony aromas. Very finessed and filigreed on the palate, this is a perfectly round, intense, lush and stimulatingly juicy Spätlese of great elegance. The finish is long, lush and intense, and reveals a fine structure."

Fritz Haag

The terrifyingly steep and isolated Brauneberg hillside has been revered as a top vineyard site since the Romans first cultivated wine grapes in the Mosel valley. The Juffer Sonnenuhr is the choicest center cut of the Brauneberg — the steepest and most south-facing part of the hillside. This Grosse Lage (Grand Cru) site produces profound, distinctive wines with great purity and concentration.

The Brauneberg is an isolated, south-facing hill that, unlike most other great Mosel sites, has very little forest above it to provide water. The relative lack of water and the well-drained brown slate soil make it one of the drier vineyards in the area, a great advantage in wet years, which occur frequently in this cool, northern climate. The wines tend to have a brawny, muscular structure to them due to the nature of this site. With painstaking selection at harvest, and meticulous cellar work, the Fritz Haag estate produces wines that combine the typical Brauneberg power with astonishing clarity and a sophisticated sleekness.
