Clemens Busch - Nonnengarten Fass 29 2015
A sublime Riesling by the biodynamic Mosel producer Clemens Busch. We know these wines well, having done the 2013 harvest there and keeping track of the wines ever since. We love this part of the Marienberg, which is just below the big monastery on top of the vineyards, hence the name 'nun's garden'.
We do think that to be enjoyable, the wines of Clemens Busch really have to be properly aged, that's why we are currently only offering this 2015 vintage. A ripe and warm vintage for the Mosel, especially on this southfacing steep slope on red slate. A wine we love with its honeysuckle, ripe citrus notes, a glass you can just keep smelling all night. Biodynamic farming, spontaneous fermentation, barrel aged. Almost conventional sulfitage, hence the aging to soften the wines up a bit. Drink now - 2025.
