Weingut Christmann – 15/02/2012

Trocken Riesling 2010
An orange blossom nose with a great lemon pith texture in the mid-palate. There was great balance and freshness in this wine, vibrant acidity and purity of fruit.

Gimmeldingen Trocken Riesling 2010
A slightly dustier reductive citric nose, and was more delicate in its mineral complexity.

Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten Riesling 2010
Even more subdued in character, but had a fuller and richer palate structure, and included some roasted vegetable complexity.

Mandelgarten Grosses Gewachs Riesling 2010
Much more intense in colour and viscosity. On the nose it was slightly toasty and flinty, but on the palate was loaded with minerality. This was a wine of pure personality, and would cry if it were drunk too young.
