Clemens Busch Riesling trocken `Vom Grauen Schiefer` 2013
I don`t drink white wines in winter that often. A season for them starts normally at the end of march. But there`s no need to be a prisoner of habits.
A creamy seefood pasta was screaming for a Riesling!
Bought this Bio Riesling from a little wine shop in Berlin, Prenzlauerberg for 13 e. So not a big investment.

Wine-searcher average price: 14€
Shy bouqet of citrus notes, yeast, flintyness.
On the palate light bodied, lively, very citrusy with a high and piercing acidity.
Medium and a bit tart aftertaste of honeyed grapefruit and lemon peel rounded up with pungent chalkyness and a hint of smoke.
A solid, midweight, entry level Mosel Riesling. Nothing to write home about, but for the price this delivers.
