A. Christmann Riesling Trocken Konigsbacher Idig 2008

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

Christmann's top vines of the Idig vineyard are among their best -- they're located in the village of Konigsbacher. This dry Riesling has aromas of passion fruit and peaches. A Riesling with a touch of the exotic and minerals to give backbone. In the league of German Rieslings that are age-worthy.
