Winery Notes:

Extreme dryness across the summer months, followed by variable weather in autumn, presented massive challenges and demanded steady nerves during the 2022 growing season. Young vines struggled in the intense heat, yet the older vines proved their resilience. In spite of the immense heat on the stony slate soils, their roots effortlessly reached deeper layers of earth with sufficient water. As challenging as the 2022 vintage was, the extraordinary quality of the wines shows that their many labors were worth it. Our Rieslings are already impressing us with concentrated fruit, yet also a certain lightness and fine elegance of massive promise.

Fascinating nose of vanilla bean, licorice, white peach and melon. Giant wet stone freshness that pushes the unfermented grape sweetness, inherent to this style, way into the background. Firm structure at the long, cool and subtly earthy finish. Drink or hold.

The 2022 Riesling Brauneberger Juffer Spätlese is from across the site. The nose fuses peachy richness with passion fruit's vivid, aromatic tartness. Here, the sweetness of around 75g/L is central, tempered by citric brightness but sprayed with cool slate freshness, enriched with vivid fruit. The finish tapers back into citrus layers of orange and salty slate. Wonderful. (Sweet)

Beautifully delineated, pure and zingy. This shows expressive and concentrated notes of candied lime, vanilla and cream that mingle with the lively structure. Huge intensity of flavors and richness packed into this sleek frame. Drink now–2042.
