Pale to mid Gold - brilliant clarity. Fulsome on the palate for a Dry German Riesling (12.7.% Alcohol). Aromas of cumquat jam and on the palate profound intensity with palate staining flavours with Apricot and honey. One can see why the favourite varietal of many winemakers is Riesling because it is pure grape juice which speaks of its terroir - no oak influence. This is superb. One of the best Dry German Rieslings I have had. Interestingly Christmann grow a very good Pinot Noir (Spatburgunder) on these same Limestone based soils.

Had it December 2014.
Very good, quite dry version in this vintage, very minerally, fat as well. It goes down easily and above all it lingers beautifully. Yes, yes , yes✌️✌✌

Drar åt auslese med honung och mogna stenfrukter, lite fläder och kryddor. Bra syra och mineralitet. Mycket god. Drickfärdig men klarar mer tid i källaren.

(17+/20) Аромат груши, персикового пюре, молочной карамели. Довольно тельное с высокой, ещё не интегрированной кислотностью. Молодо.
