Producing high quality dry wines proved quite challenging in the Mosel (and more generally in Germany) in 2010. High sugar levels from an early botrytis development and high levels of acidity are really not what winemakers need or want to produce this type of wines.

However, a few Estates made some strict selections of not overripe clean grapes and managed to produce some fine dry wines. The Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Trocken by the Fritz Haag Estate is one of these rare fine dry wines in 2010 and worthy of being highlighted as wine of the month

Made from three tanks fermented with ambient yeasts, this is a beauty and quite a success in this vintage. The wine shines through great clean aromas of flowers, yellow fruits, pineapple, mango and whipped cream on the nose. This wine is about delicacy and complexity and it is easy to overlook its beauty. The balance on the palate is very nice and the finish is long, precise and racy. In one word: Bravo! Now-2017+
