Fresh and piquant, with firm tannins and challenging minerality, this is a pretty austere and exacting Riesling with a firm but still a bit drying finish. The grapes were macerated for 36 hours. Clemens agrees that this is an astringent wine today, but he believes it will leave the Rothenpfad behind one day. Tasted February 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt collapse

Still slightly funky from the very long lees contact, but this is a stunning dry Mosel with beautiful peaches. A very long and mineral finish that suggests this has excellent aging potential. Drink or hold. - Stuart Pigott

Almond, pistachio, iris, gentian, white peach and grapefruit combine for an enticing nose and a correspondingly multifaceted palate impression. Stone, alkali, peach pit and grapefruit seed want to pull things in an austere direction. But there is a lot more gloss – schmaltz, if you will – than exhibited by the corresponding Rothenpfad, combined with similarly efficacious acidity, so that this Fahrlay’s tingling and juiciness invigorate and consummately refresh. What a formidable finish it displays! -- David Schildknecht collapse
