Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese 375ml
Min. Quantity: 3
Fritz Haag's Brauneberger Riesling Auslese, shows minerality and concentrated, complex aromas on the nose and on the palate, without losing finesse and straightness. The fine, exotic fruit flavours are reminiscent of mirabelle plums, papaya and apricot nectar. An ideal balance of sweetness and acidity. The historic Fritz Haag wine estate is located in the heart of the central Mosel River Valley. The earliest documentation of the estate dates back to 1605. The Fritz Haag estate owns 18.5ha of vineyards which are all exclusively planted with Riesling. The excellent micro-climate and the deep slate soils of the Brauneberger Juffer slope form the basis for some of the most intensely flavoured and elegantly-structured Riesling wines of the Mosel region. Oliver Haag, the current proprietor, rigorously selects the clones most suited to the microclimate of his vineyards in order to achieve the maximum potential in the grapes. As a winemaker, Oliver’s skills are matched by few. His wines all display a pleasing subtle colour and show a well-defined palate that reaches from honeysuckle to pears and apples. They are laced with citrus and underlying mineral tones, reflecting the brown slate vineyards of Brauneberg.
