We speak from experience when we say that this featherweight dry Riesling is the perfect pick-me-up after a long day spent trying to convince people that Riesling is the perfect pick-me-up. Aromas of mandarin and lime, backed by mineral impressions of blue-grey slate and and glacial water spiked with peach juice. If you are wondering why it's particularly good for a humble 'trocken', it might be because Clemens-Busch use some declassified fruit from their 'Grosses Gewachs' cuvées. 10.5% alc. Drink now-2020


Press reviews:

Vinous:
“The nose here is so bright in its evocation of lemon and grapefruit that you almost need sunglasses – and such prominent, brisk acidity as this displays in the mouth is also unusual in a Busch collection, where a share of malolactic transformation is frequently present, including here. The feel is silken. An undertone of wet stone, along with piquant citrus peel and walnut accents, pulls in a slightly austere direction. But tangy, satisfyingly persistent juiciness on the long finish renders this impressively concentrated and well-stuffed yet alcoholically lightweight (at 10.5%) bottling fun to drink already." 90 points
