The 2014 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Spätlese displays a clear and very fine, flinty/slatey bouquet of ripe Riesling berries. Sweet, piquant and salty on the palate, this is a well concentrated, firmly structured and persistent Riesling with a good and complex finish. A picture-book Spätlese from the Juffer that should be aged for at least ten years.

A curious whiff of lemon pastry entices on the nose of this sprightly wine. The palate is intensely ripe, bursting with sweet honeysuckle nectar and tangerine, yet it's almost lacy in texture, cut by a spray of green-apple acidity. It's delicious already, but sure to hold well for another decade.

Pineapple and grapefruit join more predictable apple in a luscious and judiciously sweet elixir tinged with mouthwatering salinity and underlain with wet stone. A glycerol slick on the palate and a hint of honey both point to discreet botrytis influence. Cashew and almond add richness to the sappy brightness and pure, exuberant fruit in a delicately but vibrantly lingering finish.
