Clemens Busch Marienburg GG Fahrlay Terrasses 2016

Clemens Busch is an extremist producing most beautiful Biodynamic Grosses Gewächs- Grand Cru Riesling in Mosel. The wine from Marienburg Fahrlay is full bodied, sublime and charming. Sweet orange, passion fruit flavours balanced by intense, salty and stony minerality coming from blue slate, hard rock structure of Fahrlay vineyards. A very exciting, unique and great white wine. In 2016 Clemens Busch's Marienburg Fahrlay was one of the best wines in Mosel.

"The Fahrlay appears the most exotic of Clemens Busch’s Grosse Gewächse in terms of fruit, without sliding into the trap of tropical exuberance. The fruit may be ripe and sweet, but it’s juicy and fresh too, a real mouthful, refined by subtle mineral layers and almost gripping acidity."
