Light and delicate; peaches in a cool stream. Less body than expected, especially given the vintage. Fairly restrained with good acidity.

Peaches, honey, and floral notes. Medium plus body and acidity, which balances the off dry sweetness. Long finish. I can't stop drinking this.

Karl-Joseph Christoffel's 2013 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett is the Mosel at its finest: pure, finely chiseled and unbelievable elegant! It is a tribute to how Riesling blossoms on slate soils. Delicately off-dry, it is my top value pick for Germany in 2013. (JP)

Sweeter than I would have liked. But beautifully aromatic.

A vividly bright and crisp Mosel Riesling with undertones of minerals and flint. Key limes, white peaches, stonefruit blossoms, ripe honeydew, chervil, and a kiss of honey

Interesting compromise for and after dinner drink when something bit too sweet was required. Citrusy notes with good acidity balancing out the sugar. Hit just the spot.
