19/20 points, Jancis Robinson: "The Fahrlay appears the most exotic of Clemens Busch’s Grosse Gewächse in terms of fruit, without sliding into the trap of tropical exuberance. The fruit may be ripe and sweet, but it’s juicy and fresh too, a real mouthful, refined by subtle mineral layers and almost gripping acidity."

Mosel Germany

Mosel is the most famous of Germany's 13 official wine regions, also the third largest in terms of production where the best Rieslings are grown. Its reputation dates back to the Romans who planted the first vineyards along the Mosel river and the city of Trier around the second century. The region is known for its steep slopes overlooking the rivers, on which the vineyards are planted. The steepest vineyard site in the world is located in the town of Bremm, with an incline of 65 degrees.

Being inaccessible to machinery means that seven times amount of manual labour is required. However, this technical difficulty does not prevent them to produce one of the best white wines, Riesling, of the world.
