From blue slate soils and aged on the lees for 24 months, the 2015 Pündericher Marienburg Riesling "Fahrlay" Reserve displays a very pure and smoky nose with herbal aromas and clear, well-concentrated fruit that is still in the background. 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

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
