The 2006 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Auslese Gold Capsule A.P. #9 leads with pineapple, pink grapefruit, mandarin, and peach, setting the stage for a luscious and refreshing -- while at the same time honeyed, creamy-rich, liqueur-like -- palate performance. Orange blossom, lily, and hints of musk waft throughout, and together with subtle expressions of botrytis give this a delightfully mysterious aura. The lingering finish is at once soothing and luxurious yet also stimulating and intriguing. This is extraordinarily balanced nobly sweet Riesling, and if it lacks quite the clarity and riveting complexity of the corresponding Juffer, it is always worth bearing in mind the collective wisdom of the Haags and other local growers that great wine from Juffer-Sonnenuhr will take longer to express its full potential.

Golden yellow. Sumptuous aromas of peach skin, ripe apricot and clove waft over a firm bed of brown spice botrytis. The rich, dense passion fruit flavor is creamy and silky, enlivened by an ethereal minerality. This is fruit concentration with angel's wings and one of the ten best ausleses of the vintage, topped only by Haag's two rare auction wines. (JP)
An intense Riesling, packed with apricot, lime, vanilla cream and slate aromas and flavors. Has precision balance and an airy, cashmerelike texture. The flavors continue to develop on the finish. Drink now through 2030. (BS)
