Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2016 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Spätlese is very clear and nicely reductive on the flinty and limey nose. Lush, round and very elegant on the palate, this is a beautifully mineral and complex Sonnenuhr with a long and intensely aromatic but always refined and refreshing mineral finish. This is a fabulous Spätlese from the Juffer. Tasted March 2018
The Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer is more precocious and affordable of two Spatlese produced at the estate. It comes from the younger vines and offers immediate attraction and drinkability. Aromas and flavors of Mirabelle plum, white peach, honeydew melon and marzipan, all juxtaposed against a canvas of minerals and slate.
So, so refined and elegant. Let this shine with a simple roast chicken, a mildly seasoned veal chop, delicate seafood like cracked crab, or just manchego cheese and raspberries.
