Oliver Haag’s 2018 Juffer-Sonnenuhr Spätlese was clearly one of the finest examples of this Prädikat that I tasted during my ten day visit to the region and I cannot recall ever tasting a better young vintage of Spätlese from this estate! The brilliant bouquet soars from the glass in a youthful blend of lime, pear, gorgeous, very salty slate minerality, violets, bee pollen and an exotic touch of fresh mint in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, laser-like and tensile, with beautiful complexity and filigree, snappy acids, perfect balanced and outstanding lift on the very, very long and utterly refined finish. Brilliant juice.
This is a very sexy riesling with immense minerality in the way of cloves, flint and dried spices. So much citron and orange-blossom character. Wonderfully dense yet elegant with cut-throat acidity and gliding, citrus and stone flavors. The slight off-dryness is so cleverly worked into this sleek package. Drink now.
Graceful, showing a good amount of concentration on the palate, offset by vivid structure and vibrancy that flows through. Notes of mango, guava and lime mix with elderberry and coriander details, all linked by a common thread leading to the long, pure finish. (AZ)
