Christoffel is one of our favorite producers in the Mosel region of Germany, thanks to its consistent house style of clean, bright, well balanced Rieslings. This should come as no surprise, since the Christoffel family has been involved in wine production since the 17th century -- they know their way around their land. This 2012 Kabinett comes from the Ürziger Würzgarten vineyard, or ‘spice garden,’ so named because its iron rich slate is red, and produces notably spicy wines. And it indeed does produce a wine of subtle spice aromas and flavors with added notes of charred wood and stony minerality. It is medium bodied but has a richness on the mid palate that is balanced perfectly by the crisp, acid finish.
