Here is another great, #dry #Mosel from 2013 that's packed with layered, spicy, powerful flavors due to its #red #slate soil--drink this with Asian cuisines of all kinds or simply by itself--this wine SINGS! #clemensbusch #Riesling #vomrotenschiefer

First Clemens Busch Riesling. First one I've been even able to find out here; not that much of his wines make it out to Minnesota. I think this might be a slightly off bottle or too young/in a dumb phase of sorts because it's not super expressive and seems slightly closed, but even still it's quite good nonetheless. Very mineral, clean, subtle and elegant Riesling here. Pours a pale gold hue. Medium concentration of aromas of slightly underripe nectarine and white peach, lime juice, clean river water and wet slate minerality, fresh jasmine floral character, some TDN that is showing more "new plastic" than "petrol", some subtle cardamom character and a touch of savory leesiness. On the palate it shows damn near identically to the nose. High acid, light body but with pleasant slightly oily, dense leesy texture. Pretty much dry but definitely not *bone* dry. Medium (-) alcohol, in balance. This is some pretty good stuff and will probably buy another bottle of this stuff to see if it shows any more generously than this one or if it is truly just in a relatively inexpressive phase. Can definitely see why this producer is so hyped.

Druckvoll,mineralisch, würzig und dennoch reichlich Frucht. Blitzblanker Riesling, geboren auf rotem Schiefer. Mindestens 30 Min vor dem Genießen öffnen, ruhig auch 10 Min im Glas stehen lassen. Jede Minute lässt den Wein wachsen. Ein kleiner Schläfer, der es in sich hat.
