Riesling GG Marienburg Rothenpfad

2017

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, like all wines made from such soil, is pungent and exotic with pronounced ripeness and great staying power. White wine for red meat.

"From vines that are 80+ years old, the 2017 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling GG Rothenpfad is enormously deep and intense but pure and refined with beautiful aromas of herbs and crushed stones on the nose that come along like a perfume. Silky and round on the palate, this is a full-bodied, lush and refined yet concentrated and even powerful and persistent Riesling with great intensity and concentration on the long and stimulatingly salty-piquant finish. A great wine. Tasted in March 2019."
