"Demure notes of lemon and crushed mineral on the nose contrast an exuberant palate full of pink grapefruit and hibiscus nectar. It's a gorgeously silky, concentrated dry Riesling, with a firm mineral backbone and electric acidity that need time to meld. Hold until 2020 as it's likely to improve well through 2030."

"The 2016 Brauneberg Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Trocken "GG" displays a very fine and flinty bouquet with beautifully crunchy slate aromas. On the palate this is a full-bodied, highly finessed and elegant Riesling with great balance and remarkably fine terroir expression. It is filigreed and stimulatingly salty in the long, complex finish. This is a fabulous dry Juffer Sonnenuhr that was bottled with 12.9% alcohol in August 2017. Probably the best "Grosses Gewächs" I have ever had from this domaine. AP #8, tasted March 2018."

Fritz Haag

Only Riesling grapes, which are tended throughout the year by experienced employees, are to be found in the top locations of the Fritz Haag vineyard. The wine harvest is naturally carried out manually and often in several passes. The gentle processing of the grapes and the careful seasoning of the wines are in the hands of Oliver Haag.

The terroir of the slaty, 100% south-facing Brauneberg sites is composed of fine, weathered Devonian slate that seems almost oily and seems to continually regenerate itself from the depths of its soils.
