Fritz Haag Brauneberg Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese
Country: Germany, Mosel
Tasting Notes: The terrifyingly steep Brauneberg hillside has been revered as a top vineyard site since the Romans first cultivated wine grapes in the Mosel valley in the second century AD. The Juffer Sonnenuhr is the choicest center cut of the Brauneberg — the steepest and most south-facing part of the hillside that surrounds the sundial. This Grosse Lage (Grand Cru) site produces profound, distinctive wines. Auslese is a special selection of late-picked, very ripe clusters with about 50 percent botrytis-affected grapes.
Varietal: 100% Riesling
