The historic Fritz Haag wine estate is located in the heart of the central Mosel River Valley. The earliest documentation of the estate dates back to 1605. At that time, the village in which it is situated was known as ‘Dusemond.’ In 1925, this village was renamed ‘Brauneberg’ (‘brown mountain,’ a reference to the colour of the slate soil in this area of the Mosel) in an endeavour to further promote the reputation of its world-renowned vineyards ‘Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr’ and ‘Brauneberger Juffer.
The Juffer Sonnenuhr Spätlese always keeps what its name promises. Compared to the Juffer, which is characterized by cool fruit and ethereal, the Sonnenuhr Spätlese appears clearly warmer in its structure and sensory properties. Juicy body, ripe, playful exoticism and an expressive floral bouquet are the core elements of this wine. Gently pressed, spontaneously fermented and matured on fine lees for six months over winter.
All the flowers of a summer garden in Northern Europe plus the contents of a greenhouse full of tropical plants. Very filigree with great fresh herb delicacy. Then comes a finish of dreamy beauty that makes you forget all the troubles of the world. This has some unfermented grape sweetness, but it helps make this more uplifting. Drink or hold.
