The estate Willi Haag cultivates 6 hectares of vineyards in steep, partly extremely steep location. The weather-beaten slate soil domination in the vineyards is perfectly suitable for the cultivation of the Riesling grape. The promotion of wine-growing on the steep slopes and, connected with that, the conservation of this man-made landscape make the philosophy of the Haag family. Great importance is as well attached to the cultivation of the Riesling grape, so typical for the Moselle.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Beerenauslese A.P. #2 - picked out in various parcels over several days in mid-harvest - exudes pineapple, nectarine, mango, and white raisin. Very pure and concentrated in every respect, this is only lightly caramelized but implosively dried fruit in character, and at the same time shot through with bright, vibrant acidity. It needs time to find its harmony, and meantime is somewhat dominated by its sheer sweetness. Give it 20 years, and expect it to last that long again.

David Schildknecht, October 2008
