We feature here a stunning Auslese GK styled wine auctioned off by this probably lesser-known Estate as one of our two wines of the month following the auctions.

Once again the two Auctions held by the Bernkasteler Ring and the Grosser Ring / VDP at the end of September were absolutely amazing events with some stunning wines on sale, as we reported in our Special Issue - Auction Guide released before the Auctions, at beginning of September.
While price levels of some of the best wines proved quite steep, not all great wines needed to break one's bank. This applies in particular to the stunning Auslese GK-styled Brauneberger Juffer Auslese sold in magnum by the lesser-known Bauer Estate in Mülheim.
Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Auslese Auction
This Estate is not (yet) well known on the international market but this could change quickly judging by this head-turner! It exhibits elegant and fresh scents of peach, pear, mint and apricot flowers on the nose as well as delicately elegant notes of honeyed spices on the palate. This all leads to a firm acidity which freshens up the finish. This wine, only bottled in magnums, is a great success in this vintage. 2015-2030
