Vinification of the Clemens Busch Riesling from red slate
This elegant white wine from Germany is vinified from the Riesling grape variety. In the Moselle region, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on soils of slate. Moreover, the grapes of this top wine from Clemens Busch do not grow in the flatlands, but dig their roots into the soil on steep slopes. Steep slope cultivation ensures that even in less sunny winegrowing regions with shorter growing seasons, the vines catch a maximum of sun. The fact that Riesling grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has an influence on the ripeness of the grapes that cannot be dismissed. This results, among other things, in particularly long and even grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. After the hand harvest, the grapes are quickly taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Then fermentation takes place in large wood at controlled temperatures. After the completion of fermentation, the Riesling from red slate is aged for several months in 1000 liter oak barrels.
