Small family owned winery with a long winegrowing tradition, 500 years in the hands of the same family, located in the very heart of the Mosel, in the village of Brauneberg, where the 15th century house that held the original cellar is still proudly standing to be the oldest building in the village. Since 1995, Marcus Haag the grandchild of Willi Haag, has been in charge of the cellars, where he produces a wide range of wines focusing entirely on the Riesling variety combining tradition with innovation. All the grapes are sourced from their estate, just 6.5 hectares of vineyards, steep slate-soil vineyards. Some of the vineyards sites are located on the “Juffer”, the name of the steeped slope opposite the small town of Brauneberg and overlooking the river Mosel, sites with an exceptional potential ideally suited to the Riesling grape, here the best vineyards are situated around the sundial (Sonnenuhr) making this one of the top German ideal locations for Riesling winegrowing. An excellent range of wines praised for its excellent quality-price ratio.
Auslese: Wines made from selected bunches of very ripe grapes, picked at a later stage than the general harvest and usually later than the Spätlese. Noble wines with an intense bouquet and taste that age beautifully, excellent with cheese plates and foie
The Juffer-Sonnenuhr Brauneberg Auslese is a single estate wine (Grosse Lage), late harvested, from the steeped south facing slope “Juffer” in the town of Brauneberg, from soil made up of weathered blue and grey slate. 101 gr. residual sugar.
Tasting Notes: Elegant and beautifully balanced between fruit and racy acidity with sweetness, classic in style with a light fresh appeal in its early years, ripe mango and pear, apple with a hint of caramel, palate rich and creamy, mouth-filling with a pleasantly sweet fruited finish.
Notes: Wine with a great ageing capacity gaining in complexity. Enjoy through 2028 minimum.
