Tasting note from dated 14.07.2020, Copyright Christoph Raffelt


If you walk through the Rothenpfad in the summer heat, your boots will later be covered in red dust. So here the name says it all. The vineyard above the Pünderich viaduct is characterized by slate and iron oxide, which colors the stone. The southeastern orientation plays a positive role, especially in hot years. The vineyard has already been chosen into the first category in the meanwhile 150-year-old vineyard map of Mosel, Saar and Ruwer.
After harvesting and sorting, the vines, most of which are more than 80 years old, receive a longer maceration period and 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. Maturation takes place in traditional Moselan Fuder barrels with a capacity of 1,000 litres. The Großes Gewächse are usually filled in late summer.

The nose of this late release from Großes Gewächs from the Rothenberg is a revelation. Here, it smells intensely and opulently of ripe stone fruit, pome fruit and exotic notes - like a whole fruit basket with mirabelles and nectarines, yellow pears, soft apricots, oranges and grapefruits, pineapple and a little mango. In addition, there is the obligatory spicy slate and also a cool note, which almost seems as if Clemens Busch had draped a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the middle of the very ripe yellow fruit.


This coolness and creaminess and of course also the expansive yellow fruitiness is also found on the palate, where the wine increases enormously in power and also in spiciness. Here one thinks to feel a little Botrytis beside the fruit. There is tobacco, crushed stone, a few herbal and vegetal notes as well as earthy and nutty. The Riesling has a comparatively restrained yet lively acidity, coupled with a fine fruit sweetness that fades into a long, tart finish.
