TERROIR TRANSLATION: GRAND CRU DRY MOSEL AT UNDER $50 (IN STOCK)

2019 is an epic vintage in Germany with bright, ripe flavors and great balance. Clemens-Busch knocked these wines out of the ballpark, and Mosel Fine Wines, one of our favorite sources for information on fresh German releases, declared this the dry Riesling of the vintage in the Mosel! Clemens Busch has been one of the organic and later biodynamic pioneers in Germany. After joining the family estate in 1974, he experimented with organic viticulture and in 1986, he was a founding member of Germany’s first organic grower organization. “I did not take the organic route out of principles. It is more something which grew steadily over time, as I was seeing the positive effects it had on my vineyards and my wines.” He has gradually embraced biodynamic principles since 2005 and has been fully certified since the 2015 vintage. The house style was built on late harvesting, long pre-fermentation cold soak (up to 12-24 hours), and extensive aging in Fuder oak casks.

 

It offers a superbly engaging nose made of cassis, grapefruit zest, citrusy fruits, ginger, elderflower, fine spices, herbs, and smoke. The wine proves gorgeously packed with racy flavors and smoke on the intensely flavored palate and leaves a superbly playful feel of whipped cream, earthy spices, and grapefruit zest in the long and subtly smoky finish.”
 – Mosel Fine Wines
