2018 Juffer GG [24 19] (HAAG01218A)
A lovely elegant fine wine, with very juicy ripe yellow fruit and a pronounced stony minerality building through to a long salty finish.
2017 Juffer GG [24 18] (HAAG01217A)
Polished fresh and elegant fruit is joined by slaty mineral flavours and bright citrus acidity in a smooth, balanced wine that is long and satisfying.
2016 Juffer GG [24 17] (HAAG01216A)
A juicy waxy creamy citrus nose is followed by deliciously fruity, fine and vibrant flavours in the mouth. This is delightfully forward and lovely. Drink 2018 - 2026
2015 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr GG [08 16] (HAAG02215A)
An extraordinary wine that combines power with delicacy and fluidity with intensity. There is ample peachy fruit, a soft creamy minerality, and a smooth long finish.
2019 Brauneberger Juffer Kabinett [03 20] (HAAG06219A)
A textbook Kabinett: racy, featherlight and juicy. It is a little drier than in the past, accentuated by the bright lemony acidity that nicely balances the cool fresh, slightly spicy grapefruit, elderflower and yellow peach, and there is hint of salinity on the finish. This has to be up there as one of the best wines of the vintage.
2017 Brauneberger Kabinett [03 18] (HAAG06217A)
What the Mosel does best: fresh, light, persistent, open floral and tangy citrus flavours, spicy minerality and a vibrant finish.
2019 Brauneberger Juffer Spätlese [05 20] (HAAG17219A)
Light, delicate and pure, showing yellow fruit and pronounced spice notes, accompanied by a gentle minerality and ripe juicy acidity. Oliver’s father Wilhelm described his goal as making wine that would make ‘the tastebuds spring to attention and cry for more.’ Job done here.
2018 Brauneberger Juffer Spätlese [05 19] (HAAG17218A)
We have never previously offered this, but in 2018 its understated finesse was impossible to overlook. There is an irresistible freshness and purity, a balance between floral lemony fruit and very fine salty flavours, and it finishes on pure long sweet-sour note.
2019 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Spätlese [07 20] (HAAG20219A)
Made from vines clustered around the sundial in the heart of the vineyard, where it is very rocky. The rocks absorb warmth quickly, and the resulting wines are richer than those from the surrounding Juffer vineyard. The wine is riper, finer and more elegant than the plain Juffer, with more pronounced yellow fruit and spice notes. There is a cool greenness here, too, and the acidity is ripe and fresh. It has power without being overbearing, a seamless, complex wine that is lovely now and will be for decades.
2019 Brauneberger Juffer Auslese [20 20] (HAAG28219A)
Germans love their technical figures. Ask a French grower how much acidity a wine has, and they will give you an odd look. A German, on the other hand will have precise alcohol levels, acidity, residual sugar and degree of ripeness at their fingertips. So far so interesting, but they will stress that these figures bear no relation to how the wines actually taste. And that’s what we have here: a wine with over 100g/l of residual sugar that should taste very sweet…but in fact tastes practically dry. It is very brisk and lemony, full of cool fresh green and yellow fruit, shy and elegant, with a delicate salinity becoming more pronounced on the lingering finish.
2019 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Auslese [06 20] (HAAG30219A)
There is only a marginal difference in ripeness between this and the Juffer Auslese, but the grapes come from vines in the oldest plots around the sundial, and the result is quite distinct: the wine is riper and smoother, the salty minerality impossibly fine, and the acidity enlivening and juicy. Power without weight, effortless elegance – this is a winemaker at the top of his game coaxing the best from his vineyard.
2017 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Auslese [06 18] (HAAG30217A)
Piercingly clear bright yellow fruit - peaches, greengages and apricots - give a sense of lusciousness, although there is no botrytis, and the whole is seamless, elegant and smooth, ending on a long juicy tangy sweet-sour-salty note.
2019 Brauneberger Juffer Auslese Goldkapsel [22 20] (HAAG39219B)
Botrytis creeps in at this level, but is pure and never oppressive. Oliver reported that he tried to keep this wine fine and on the lighter side, and he has succeeded. It has delicate yellow fruit, spice and a slight creaminess enveloping the steely mineral core.
2019 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Auslese Goldkapsel [09 20] (HAAG40219A)
More power than the Juffer, but also more finesse. It is noticeably sweeter and deeper, and the density more in evidence. There is pronounced yellow fruit, lots of spice, and a lemon sherbet note to the bright acidity. The finish is very long, made lean by fine minerality.
