Clemens' 2019 Riesling trocken is sourced from a few different biodynamic sites in the lower Mosel, grown on a patchwork of different soils that are distinctive of the region. This is a stunning example of modern Mosel Riesling made by the master himself; zingy, fresh, crisp and a delightfully low alcohol.
About Clemens Busch
Clemens Busch is a pioneer of organic and biodynamic winemaking in the Mosel region of Germany. From the 1970’s, long before it was ‘cool’ to work in a natural way, Clemens and his wife Rita were already questioning the excessive use of herbicides and sulphur in local winemaking. They inherited their own vineyards in the mid 1980’s and finally had a chance to put their ideas into practice. These vines let the results speak for themselves. Teetering on the edge of the hills overlooking the winding Mosel river, these vineyards are a paradise for diverse grape growing. Fermented using wild yeast, nothing is added to their wines at any stage – apart from a miniscule dose of sulphur at bottling. Charming and self-effacing, Clemens' winemaking is honest and refined, producing wines that are pure expressions of their terroir.
