Destined at some point for auction, the 75 liters of Fritz Haag 2009 Braunebeger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese present a semi-tropical effusion of peach preserves, papaya, and pink grapefruit, all slathered in honey and overlain by wood smoke and truffle. As noted in a couple of other instances in the present collection, there is greater opulence but also more prominent – or at least, a more detached sense of – acidity than in the corresponding Juffer, while the latter displays greater levity and poise. Still, there is overwhelming richness and amazing persistence to the flavors here simultaneous with intense citricity; and yet more awe-inspiring than today’s performance is the thought that this will surely display even greater complexity and more refined comportment over the course of its next half century or so.
