Clemens Busch

Vom Roten Schiefer Riesling 2022

  • Biodynamic
  • Organic

Produced from biodynamically grown Riesling from one of Germany’s most renown producers, Clemens Busch, this white is refreshingly lush and expressive, filled with ripe, yellow stone fruit, yellow apple white strawberry, and exotic citrus notes. Juicy and fresh, with beautiful tension and wet stone minerality on the finish, this is an exciting wine that is only going to get better with time.  Vom roten Schiefer translates to “on the red slate,” a reference to the fact that the grapes for this wine grow on two different sites —Rothenpfad, a very steep south-facing slope consisting of soft, red clay slate — and Nonnengarten, a similarly steep slope with marbled red clay soils. These two types complement each other perfectly. Dont miss it. 

Clemens Busch

Clemens and Rita Busch are biodynamic practitioners in the Marienburg vineyards of Pünderich, which lies at the intersection of the Middle and Lower Mosel. The geology here is exceptional, based on a tremendously steep, volcanic formation hundreds of millions of years old. A fifth generation winemaker, Clemens started working in his father’s 2-hectare estate in 1975 and has spent his career not only expanding the holdings, but also leading organic viticulture in Germany. They were among the first in the country to commit to organic viticulture and helped establish an association of organic growers in 1986. The estate converted to biodynamics entirely in 2005, earning certifications from the EU and Respekt-Biodyn. Clemens holds a permanent place in history as a role model and beacon of change among German winemakers.
