100-year-old vines
Dry style, Grosses Gewächs (or Grand Cru) 100% Riesling

The Fahrlay is approximately 1 ha of vines, located near the little car ferry that crosses the river. It is a small plot of 100 year old vines on blue slate terraces.

"Here comes the boss! The dense grapefruit, rosemary and thyme nose pulls you inexorably into the orbit of this rich and concentrated dry riesling that has enveloping,salty minerality. And, in spite of all this, it is laser-beam bright and has white-flower delicacy at the very deep finish. From 110-year-old vines. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drinkable now, but best from 2023."

"The 2020 Marienburg GG Fahrlay Terrassen offers a clear and intense, warm and concentrated yet refined and flinty bouquet of weathered slate and iodine aromas intermingled with super ripe and juicy Riesling aromas. Refined and crystalline on the palate, with immediately salivating salinity, this is a very intense and concentrated, long and complex Riesling with iodine notes and crunchy tannins. A spectacularly good wine. 12% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in July 2022."

"Made with fruit from 100-year-old vines, grown on blue slate, facing the Mosel. Clemens Busch works biodynamically, aiming to reflect his wines’ terroir, with the variety only the medium. The citrus fruit therefore plays a minor role, and it is more about the phenolic compounds, smoky hints and saline finish, which all add up to multi-layered complexity. A monumental wine."
