93pts Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2020er Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit picked at 80° Oechsle on 50-year-old vines and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (45 g/l). It offers a gorgeous nose made of white peach, herbs, and fine spices. The wine feels slightly sweet on the palate at first before a great feel of citrusy zest lifts up the flavors in the finish. The aftertaste is simply stunning, being at the same time lightfooted, gorgeously racy, mouthwatering, and packed with flavors. This gorgeous success now really only needs a little bit of patience for the touch of creamy sweetness to integrate. 2030-2050." (Issue 57 July 2021.
Always from diverse plots scattered throughout the hillside, the 2020 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Kabinett was harvested in two passes about three weeks apart (about 20% was picked late). This is clear but intense and elegant on the nose that shows a finely flinty and intensely fruity but always finessed and crystalline, slate-scented bouquet. On the palate, this is an intense and juicy sweet yet also piquant, stimulating and salty Juffer Kabinett with fine, just-ripe phenolic grip and ripe and mouth-filling fruit. The wine was aged two-thirds in steel and one-third in cask and was bottled with 8.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted from AP 4421 in November 2021.
Presents peach, apricot and apple flavors, which serve as the main themes, with underlying citrusy acidity keeping it all fresh and long. Just off-dry. Drink now. 700 cases made, 224 cases imported.
