Clemens BuschRiesling (alter-) Native
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
A new cuvée! Previously this all went to Quebec, but we will get some for NY this year. Grown in grey slate on the Marienburg. Spontaneously fermented, macerated extra time on the skins, then matured 15 months on the lees in Clemens’ big old (50+yr) German oak barrels. Unfiltered and unfined. A...

Clemens BuschRiesling GG Marienburg
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
From the original Marienburg parcel which has been in the Busch family for generations. This large grey slate parcel produced in 2016 a wine of sexy floral aromas, succulent acidity, moderate concentration and unusually charming, approachable character for a young GG, especially a Busch GG! A wine...

Clemens BuschRiesling GG Marienburg Fahrlay
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
A Bowler favorite, year after year. Clemens’ only parcel of blue slate on the Marienburg, which imparts luster, florality, sizzling acids and fantastic staying power to the wine. There is some skin contact in this wine’s vinification, lending a mild tannic backbone. It’s a steely pleaseure for...

Clemens BuschRiesling GG Marienburg Fahrley-Terrasen
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
Grapes for this cuvée are harvested on the steepest terraces of the Fahrlay grand cru, a volcanic formation of blue slate that is hundreds of millions of years old. The Terrassen (terraces) cuvee is always slightly "sweeter" than the GG from here.

Clemens BuschRiesling GG Marienburg Falkenlay
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
65-90 year old ungrafted vines planted on grey slate. A dry wine from a site famous for its noble sweets. Firm, vivid, gingery, incredibly ripe and saline with acidity that elevates it to a quiveringly “alive” state of being. Perhaps the best food wine in this collection and clearly a long term...

Clemens BuschRiesling GG Marienburg Rothenpfad
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
The Big Red One. The Rothenpfad interestingly is the terminus of the iron- and copper-rich red-colored geological formation that starts in the Saar, pops up at the Ürziger Würzgarten, Erdener Prälat and Enkircher Steffensberg sites in the Middle Mosel, and ends at Pünderich. Clemens’ GG from here,...

Clemens BuschRiesling Kabinett Marienburg
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
Full of deliciously ripe pear and berry fruit, just juicy enough, just slatey enough, just EVERYTHING enough! Sourced from cooler sites higher up the slope of the Marienburg, it hovers around 30g R/S in any given year. Fuller than a Saar Kab but leaner and twinklier than a Rheinish one (and perhaps...

Clemens BuschRiesling Trocken
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
8.3g acid and 4-5g RS, all grown in grey slate from multiple parcels in the Marienburg (including the portions that lie across the river, which don’t make it into the GG wines), a mix of young and old vines up to 50-60 yrs old, vinified 60% in barrels and 40% INOX, and 20% of the juice sees...

Clemens BuschRiesling Vom Grauen Schiefer
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
”From grey slate,” sourced from the same sites that supply Clemens’ GG wines. Stone dust and lemon/lime flavors surge through the nose and palate in a wine of extremely fine purity and energy.

Clemens BuschRiesling Vom Roten Schiefer
Riesling from Mosel, Germany
”From red slate,” sourced from the same site that supplies Clemens’ GG wine on red slate, namely the Rothenpfad. The red slate works its magic here, and in contrast to the precise, minimalist Vom Grauen Schiefer, this wine is more expansive, perfumed and glossier with more rounded edges.
