Tasting Notes

Christmann wines are a testament to the stunning Pfalz countryside, the remarkable soil, the ideal climate, all intertwined with their family's rich history and unwavering passion. Since 1798, they have taken pride in preserving and nurturing the Palatine terroir. This exceptional Pfalz Riesling offers a captivating blend of fruitiness and minerality. Meerspinne Im Mandelgarten, (Sea spider in the almond garden) is a Grosse Lage location equivalent to Grand Cru of the French appellations. Alongside the traditional yellow fruit notes, it reveals hints of honey and nutty aromas on the nose. The palate is incredibly fresh and vibrant, defined by its precise acidity. While it's delightful for immediate consumption, it promises many years of further development to come.

Still shy on the nose, but there's an entire microcosm of citrusy character in this cool-headed beauty. Long, puristic, crystalline finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified.
