So ripe yet so vibrant, this marries effortlessly the filigree soul of the Mosel with serious depth and concentration, the mineral acidity lifting you off the ground for a moment, so that you feel you can touch the sky. Drink or hold.

The 2019 Brauneberg Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Trocken GG is very fine, flinty, delicate and charming on the precise and beautifully articulated slatey and herbal nose that also displays highly refined and discreet tropical fruit aromas. However, the nose is remarkably shy at this early stage. On the palate, this is a lithe Juffer Sonnenuhr with great finesse and a pure, mineral, persistently salty and crunchy finish that doesn’t show much fruit and power at this stage. This seems to be a rather ascetic yet piquant and salty Riesling, and I am curious how the wine will develop over the next six months. The finish is very long, intense and still dominated by yeasty notes. This will develop to a spectacular JSU with time. Tasted as a sample in April 2020.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2045
