Weingut Max Ferd. Richter Brauenberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese 2009

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A satin-textured, medium-bodied wine, the 2003 Riesling Spauml;tlese Brauenberger Juffer Sonnenuhr displays a nose of creamed minerals and sweetened herbal tea. Plush, forward, and generous, its slightly diffuse character offers lush layers of spicy white fruits as well as a long, expressive finish. Drink it over the next 8 years.

From the heart of the vineyard, consisting of iron oxide-rich slate, comes this elegantly structured wine, achieving perfect balance with an underlying mineral quality and some sweetness. Enjoy this wine with spicy food such as curried chicken with apples.

Demonstrating excellent concentration, this 2001 Spauml;tlese is as fresh as they come. This was the best vintage out of the Middle Mosel since 1959; one canrsquo;t help but fall in love with the seductive candied citrus and peach flavors. Herbaceous undertones accent the brilliant acidity and mineral quality of Richterrsquo;s newest and most succulent Riesling. Drink now or lock it up until itrsquo;s fruition from 2006ndash;2018

Plump and juicy, with a cocktail of peach and mango flavors. Itrsquo;s a bit compact and lacking clarity, but satisfying. Drink now through 2010.

Compact and sinewy in texture, with a range of peach, lime and mineral notes, this is concentrated, but not that expressive today. Needs time to reveal itself. Best from 2004 through 2012.

Armed with gorgeous depth of fruit, a seamless character, as well as loads of richness, the herbal tea, flint, and tangy candied lime-scented 2001 Riesling Spauml;tlese Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr is a top-notch Spauml;tlese of Auslese concentration. White peaches, chamomile, verbena, and sugar-coated limes can be found in its elegant, powerful personality as well as in its 45+ second finish. It should be consumed between 2006 and 2018.

Lovely apricot, pineapple and mineral notes are driven by firm structure, despite being tightly wound and somewhat closed on the finish today. Best after 2002.
