Riesling GG Marienburg Fahrley-Terrasen

2018
Germany
Mosel

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.

"Long-term stuff here. A very lush wine for the dry GG category, this is almost too much at first. However, as this rolls over the palate it loses weight and gains in liveliness, becoming more energetic and subtle. Might show better after another year or two in the bottle. From organically grown grapes with Fair’n Green certification. Drinkable now, but better in 2022."
