"Despite slightly higher (12.5%) alcohol than its “village” counterpart, the Fritz Haag 2009 Brauneberger Juffer RieslingTtrocken displays greater lift and vivacity. “This is from low yielding, Auslese-like fruit, with strength – really a little Grosses Gewachs,” says Oliver Haag, “but at the same time I try to retain minerality and filigree as well as lively acidity.” It was picked a bit earlier and also came off of its lees just a bit ahead of the corresponding Sonnenuhr Grosses Gewachs. Lemon and orange rind, white currant, as well as fusil suggestions of crushed stone make for a pungent aromatic display that foreshadows the wine’s piquantly-, tartly-concentrated, firmly-textured, seemingly stone-lined palate impression. Nut oils and bitter hints of fruit pit further contribute low-toned notes to a finish which however refreshes with persistently lip-smacking, saliva-inducing ripe citrus, white currant, and peach. This is as enticing as it is formidable and ought to perform well for 6-8 years." 90/100 Parker
