The 2016 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese #12 (Gold Capsule) is very clear and fresh as well as mineral and complex on the nose. Terribly lush but highly finessed and light-footed, this is a piquant and wonderfully intense Auslese with a very long, generous, highly stimulating finish. The acidity is very fine and fresh, and the finesse of the Sonnenuhr comes out clearly. Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

This represents a botrytis selection ahead of and from the same parcel as informed the Auslese A.P. #10, a spot that is even a bit stonier than the parcel that birthed A.P. #6 and its gold capsule counterpart A.P. #9. Candied peels and juicy freshness of lime and grapefruit mingle with overripe pear, pear drops, papaya, white raisin and a hint of caramel for an aromatic and palate performance that is at once rich and piquant, opulent and brightly animating. As with this collection’s trio of Spätlesen, not to mention the best of its Auslesen, creaminess and caress are allied with near-weightlessness. The alliance of ennobled and fresh elements is prodigiously persistent. This has a fine future. David Schildknecht, Vinous
