Tasting note from from 05.03.2020, Copyright Sebastian Bordthäuser


In bright lemon yellow with white-golden edge and discreet turbidity the wine shows up brilliantly in the glass.


The aroma of this peculiar Riesling interpretation resembles the counter of a slick, yet bustling smoothie bar. Lime, kumquats and grapefruit come fresh from the press. Complementing this, the juicer shines in bright green and bursts with the flavors of kiwi and granny smith apple, but also plenty of herbal spice from watercress, chervil and wood sorrel. Even a bit of cucumber zest, white pepper and tonic further mix up this lively, life-affirming aroma and mischievously call for the first sip.


As honest and unadorned as the 2017 Riesling (alter)native by Clemens Busch presents its aroma, as documentary and, in the most positive sense, brittle it is on the palate. With the renunciation of retouching, this Riesling has an inherent charm, without showing its chocolate side. A compact body with a bitterness that literally screams for food and a determined, straightforward acidity presents itself in a charmingly cheeky manner. Lean, tall and thoughtful without being cerebral, this is both the calculation and the spot-on wit of John Cleese in wine form.
Thank the honest potion!
