2015 Clemens Busch ‘Vom Grauen Schiefer’ Riesling
Since taking over his family winery in 1984, Clemens Busch has shaped it into one of the most iconoclastic estates in the Mosel. A firm believer that biodynamics in the vines and natural practices in the cellar lead to the ultimate expression of terroir, Clemens exemplifies the balance between tradition and forward thinking.
The fruit for his Von Grauen Schiefer is taken from the impossibly steep Marienburg vineyard’s grey slate soils. It’s serious, pure dry Riesling with citrus, blackcurrant and stony mineral flavours and crisp acids adding the necessary structure.
