A. Christmann Riesling 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

There is nothing more valuable than the terroir where our vines grow. The basis of our work and our wines, is to cultivate and preserve our Estate for following generations. We take organic cultivation as a matter of course. The character of our terroir defined by climate, location and inclination together with the organic cultivation, determines the quality of our wines.

In 1845 Prof. Dr. Ludwig Häusser, professor of history at Heidelberg University and a member of the Vorparliament of the Pauluskirche together with his cousin Johann Martin, founded a small winery in Gimmeldingen as a hobby. During the next generation, wine-growing grew to become their main profession. In 1894 Eduard Christmann married Henriette Häusser, the granddaughter of the founder. Today, the Estate bears the name of her son Arnold and is run in the 7th generation by Steffen Christmann . Even with the Estate's size today, the hobby aspect is still an important factor.

Not extraordinary. Sweeter than I'd like it to be. Almost tastes like table wine.

Max Gerstl: Sensationell, diese verführerische Mineralität, die traumhafte Frucht zeigt sich dezent im Hintergrund, dennoch sind da die schönsten Früchte dieser Welt versammelt, von reifen Zitrusfrüchten bis zur edlen Tropenfrucht, ein Duft von unglaublicher Komplexität und Tiefe. Am Gaumen ein Fruchtbündel der sinnlichen Art, jeder Schluck bringt mich von Neuem ins Staunen, diese unglaublich cremige Saftigkeit, diese Rasse, diese sensationelle Länge, je länger ich den Wein probiere, desto mehr flippe ich aus, ein Meisterwerk der Natur. Beat Caduff: Der schmeichelt sich direkt in Dein Herz.

Max Gerstl: Feine, wunderbar fruchtbetonte Nase, raffinierte mineralische Variationen, sehr zart und dennoch ausdrucksvoll. Sehr saftiger, weicher, tänzerischer, dennoch rassiger Wein, unkompliziert mit einer noblen Schlichtheit, der Wein hat Charme, den muss man einfach lieben, der ist so etwas von gut, ein sensationeller Gutsriesling. Beat Caduff: Umwerfend schön. Stellen Sie sich vor das wäre der Willkommenstrunk im Hotel, wo Sie Ihren Urlaub verbringen. Da würde selbst das Ausfüllen des Anmeldeformulars zu einem Vergnügen und der Wein würde zu Ihrem ständigen Begleiter während des Urlaubs. Ein Glas zum Aperitif, ein Glas auf der Sonnenterrasse, ein Glas abends an der Bar überall wäre ein zusätzliches Genusserlebnis, ein zusätzliches Stück Lebensfreude, ein kleines Etwas, was den Urlaub unvergesslich macht.

One of the top estates of the Pfalz and for good reason. The Christmann winery takes no short cuts - hand harvesting, strict yield controls and ideal vineyard sites. The Pfalz has the warmest growing season of all German wine regions. The resulting wines are bigger in body with softer acidity. This is a dry Riesling with palpable acidity, orange blossoms and peach fruit. Just delicious and we dare say nutritious.
