Tasting Notes

(Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett Auction) AP: 13 15. This was harvested at 89° Oechsle out of the Estate’s prime parcels in the Gewann Falkenberg and auf Tornei as a light version of a Spätlese but the outstanding quality and lightness of the wine made Oliver Haag decide to bottle it separately as a Kabinett (under cork unlike the regular Kabinett at the Estate). This superb wine delivers a reduced and smoke infused nose of white minerals, greengage, spices and herbs. The wine made in the style of a light Spätlese seems to dance on the palate, being round, zesty and superbly easy to knock down. As Oliver mentions: “This is a wine made for aging” and there is still a touch of residual sugar in need of integration coming through in the beautifully long and nicely integrated finish. There is huge upside potential here and it could well turn into a hypothetical blend of the Estate’s 1996, 1994 and 1989 Spätlese. We cannot wait to taste this gorgeous wine at maturity. 2024-2044
