"The Fahrlay appears the most exotic of Clemens Busch’s Grosse Gewächse in terms of fruit, without sliding into the trap of tropical exuberance. The fruit may be ripe and sweet, but it’s juicy and fresh too, a real mouthful, refined by subtle mineral layers and almost gripping acidity. Pünderich may not sound like the most exciting of locations, but this is where in 2015 generosity met complexity for a riveting Riesling experience. Drink 2016-2025." 19/20 Jancis Robinson (Aug-2016)

"The Pündericher Marienburg Riesling GG Fahrlay is clear, fresh and very pure on the nose, and combines smoky flavors with ripe tropical fruit aromas. Gorgeously fruity on the palate, this is a lush but also pure and piquant dry Riesling with a lot of finesse and mineral tension. The aftertaste reveals nice grip and aromatic length. Excellent!"
93+/100 Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

The charming and self-effacing couple of Clemens and his wife Rita have gained a cult following over the past three decades for their laser-sharp, richly textured and terroir defined wines. Riesling is the king of grapes, the Mosel its most illustrious terrain and so produces its ultimate expression. Nowhere in the world is the identification of vine, winemaker and produce more precisely defined, and nowhere have we found Rieslings to compare with these.

In the sweet versus dry debate, it’s worth noting that Clemens only uses natural yeasts, preferring each wine to find its perfect balance in each vintage.

The name Fahrlay is made up of the words “Fahr” for ferry and “Lay” for slate. Blue slate is predominant here. This was the strong and elegant wine in the line-up, showing the richness of the vintage with years of drinking pleasure to come.
