The light-footed estate giant from Clemens Busch comes into the glass with brilliant light yellow. The nose of this Clemens Busch white wine presents all kinds of limes, grapefruits and grapefruits. As if this were not already impressive, the expansion in the large wooden barrel adds further aromas such as flint and sun-warm rock.

Light-footed and complex, this crisp and light white wine presents itself on the palate. Thanks to its succinct fruit acid, this Riesling presents itself on the palate wonderfully fresh and lively. The finale of this well-ripened white wine from the wine-growing region of the Moselle finally inspires with considerable reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral hints of the slate-dominated soils.
Vinification of Clemens Busch Riesling
The elegant Busch Riesling from Germany is a pure wine, vinified from the Riesling grape variety. On the Moselle, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on soils of slate. Moreover, the grapes of this white wine from Clemens Busch do not grow in the lowlands, but dig their roots into the ground in steep slopes. The steep slope management ensures that even in cooler wine-growing regions with less long growing periods, the vines receive a maximum of sun. The grapes for this white wine from Germany are harvested exclusively by hand at the time of optimal ripeness. After harvesting, the grapes quickly reach the press house. Here they are selected and carefully ground. This is followed by fermentation in large wood at controlled temperatures. The fermentation is followed by ageing for a few months in 1000 litres of oak fuder.
Food recommendation for the Riesling by Clemens Busch
Drink this white wine from Germany ideally well chilled at 8 - 10°C as an accompaniment to omelette with salmon and fennel, asparagus salad with quinoa or fruity endive salad.
