Christmann's 2018 Riesling Pfalz opens clear, fresh and herbal on the stony and crystalline nose, with hazelnut aromas. Clear and (bone) dry on the palate yet with a yeasty texture and fine concentration, this is a refreshing, linear, persistently salty and pure Riesling with moderate 11.7% alcohol but a lot of character and length. Tasted in Gimmeldingen, December 2019.
A gently flinty nose here with a wealth of ripe-lemon and pithy-lime aromas. This has a very succulent palate that carves a deep channel of yellow-citrus flavor. Taut finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
Very lively estate Riesling with a delightful combination of floral and fruity aromas. Fresh, light and charming.
