2019 Clemensbush 'Vom Roten Shiefer' Riesling
The 2019 vintage wines show the signature precision combining the ripe vibrant fruit flavours of the warmer season with balancing acidity. The dry Rieslings are real show-stoppers, fresh with excellent inner tension. The sweet and noble rot wines of 2019 are nuanced, with light, playful sweetness and elegant acidity – perfectly balanced.
Clemens’s Rieslings are one of the greatest expressions of soil transfer (terroir) available today, the perfect combination of exceptional site, old vines and meticulous bio-dynamic farming. Reviewers have been raving about the 2019 vintage, with the wines scoring highly across the board!
Bottled in early September, the Pundericher 2019 Riesling Vom Roten Schiefer opens with a very elegant and aromatic bouquet of ripe stone fruits (mirabelles) that are perfectly intertwined with the crystalline and crunchy expression of red, iron-rich slate. Juicy, piquant and very salty on the palate, this is a pure and fresh yet intense, structured and crystalline Riesling with a charming finish, remarkable terroir expression and just 11.5% alcohol.
