2012 is a truly great vintage for clean and juicy Kabinett and Sp├Ątlese, yet some superb Auslese and upwards wines were also produced. The fact that great Auslese were possible is nicely underlined by the sensational Brauneberger Juffer Auslese from the Willi Haag Estate. This under-rated Estate has established itself as a reliable producer of crisp and clean wines from the Brauneberger hill and hit a bull's eye with this Auslese!

This Auslese was part of our long list of "noteworthy wines" to be found in our latest Issue No 23. Subscribers will find further gems in this section of our latest issue.

Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Auslese

Made from parcels in B├╝rgerslay where the Estate still holds very old vines, this stunner of a wine delivers a superbly complex nose of spices and refined peach and grapefruit. A hint of exotic fruits comes through in the finish but this is all wrapped in a most playful acidity. The wine just flows on the palate and leaves a feather-light feel in the after-taste. This is a gorgeous success! 2017-2032
