Christmann Estate Riesling 2013
This Riesling is produced from the grapes of first pickings. These are always picked on the perfect degree of ripeness limiting the amount of fruit acid to a moderate level. The wine unites the minerality, finesse and elegant fruit of the sandstone soils in Gimmeldingen, Deidesheim and Ruppertsberg.
Honey, green apple, almost a cool mint perfume, subtle toasty notes. Punches through the palate, but has a delicacy and a honeyed creaminess that’s so charming, and mitigates the firm stony acidity and crunch of lemon and green apple. Feels very much that it’s a wine that knows exactly what it’s about. Entry level, and so impressive! Tasted: May-15; Alcohol: 11.5%; Price: $38; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2015 - 2023; Rating: 93 Points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
