Biodynamically farmed, native yeast fermentation. Riesling grown on red slate soil.
Clemens is the fifth generation winemaker at this estate (all the previous ones were also named Clemens; needless to say, he named his son Florian.) and he began using organic practices in 1984, more recently moving towards biodynamic. Clemens likes to define his wine by the soil type, so the capsule on the bottle will indicate the type of slate (blue, gray or red). The dry wines are rich, complex and immediately impressive. They also age very beautifully, gaining in complexity and texture.
