Wine information

The Pünderich site Marienburg Fahrlay is a vineyard with mainly blue shining slate. The clay content is high, and there is also a small proportion of lime particles. The very gravelly terraced site faces south. The type of rock later provides high tension and minerality in the wine. After harvesting and sorting, the grapes from the approximately 75-year-old vines receive a longer maceration period, are pressed very slowly with low pressure and fermented spontaneously. The clarification takes place by sedimentation. Apart from small amounts of sulphur, nothing else is added. The wine is matured in traditional Moselle barrels with a capacity of 1,000 litres.


medium straw yellow


The fragrance shows the Fahrlay Grosse Gewächs 2018 Quite darkly spicy with slightly smoky notes from the slate, dry herbs and earth. In addition, however, comes some creamy lanolin and an almost cheerful note of white and yellow-fleshed stone fruit, ripe citrus and pome fruit.


On the palate the Fahrlay Riesling Impressive amount of acidity in this play of bright fruit and dark spice. It is ripe, but quite punchy. The slate spice is also present and dark here, the Riesling delivers enormous power, is clear, precise and fresh, while the minerality is present and lively. Overall, this is a powerful wine ripe, elegant, intense and full of tension.
