The 2020 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese is based on ripe and predominantly healthy fruit with 15% to 20% of botrytis berries that are pretty prominent on the nose that reveals stewed fruit aromas but is also somewhat volatile and lacks the precision and freshness of the finest Auslesen. Entirely fermented in stainless steel, this is a pretty dry and structured Auslese made to be aged for about a decade. This should be an excellent gastronomic wine to be served with several dishes yet no desserts. 8% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted from AP 1621 in November 2021. ... More details

Intense fruit of ripe apricot and delicate honey, crystal clear and racy on palate, minerally structured, tastes single berries, long lasting aftertaste.

Varietal: Riesling

Riesling grapes have produced some of the finest wines of the Old World over the past couple of centuries, and are quickly becoming much loved by New World audiences as their influence continues to spread across the globe. They are generally grown and cultivated in colder climates, as is found in their native Germany, where they have the remarkable ability to pick up and express interesting features of their terroir, or the ground on which they are grown. As such, wine enthusiasts generally find Riesling one of the more interesting white grape varietals, as they produce aromas which are highly floral and perfumed alongside both fruit flavors and refreshing notes of stone and alpine water, depending on where they have been grown. Furthermore, Riesling grapes produce a large variety of fine wines, from still to sparkling, sweet to dry, and wineries which work with this grape have long since been experimenting with both frozen and rotten grapes to find out just how versatile and exciting this varietal can be.

Country: Germany

Much has changed over the past few decades in regards to German wine. Long gone are the days of mass produced, sickly sweet white wines which were once the chief exports of this fascinating and ancient wine producing country, and they have been replaced with something far more sophisticated. Whilst Germany continues to produce a relatively large amount of dessert wine, the wineries of the south of the country have reverted their attention to the production of drier, more elegant wines which really make the most of the fine grape varieties which flourish there. Many of the wineries dealing primarily with the excellent Riesling grapes have produced some truly exceptional dry and semi-sweet wines over the past few years, and it seems the world has finally woken up and noticed the extremely high quality of the distinctive produce coming out of Germany today.
