When most people say "old vines" they mean 35-50 years old. Why? Because older vines tend to produce wines of greater concentration, depth and complexity. Also, the older the vine the lower the yield so you need a lot of old vines to produce a fraction of what the younger vines can produce. But the quality is far greater than what young vines can give you. In the #Rothenpfad, for example, the vines average 85 years and these Rieslings are incredibly rich, full-bodied and extremely complex...plus they age beautifully. This #2011 has an almost chewy texture for a #Riesling and will stand up to rich sauces and grilled meats with any red wine. #ClemensBusch #Rieslinglover

This softer, more approachable 2011 #GrossesGewächs (#GG) needs advance #decanting in order to really express its enormous potential--layers of #tropical fruit notes and #mineral flavors abound--drinks now but has years of life ahead of it. #clemensbusch #riesling #Mosel
