2020 A.Christmann "Olberg-Hart" GG Riesling

A. Christmann

Pfalz, Germany

The 2020 Ölberg-Hart Königsbach Riesling Grosse Lage offers a clear, pure, fresh, saline and really classic Riesling bouquet that is clearly influenced by iron notes as well as the ripe and concentrated Riesling berry. Saline and finessed on the palate, this is a tightly structured pure and tensioned dry Riesling with lots of salinity but also ripe and fleshy fruit with fine tannins, both representing a warm, ripe vintage. It is very long and saline on the pure and youthful finish. 12.5% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted at the domaine in November 2022. Drink 2026 - 2050.

If you’re a Barolo fan, then here’s a dry riesling for you! The first impression is silky and suave, but then the massive structure - including tons of fine tannin - asserts itself. The mirabelle and citrus notes just emerging from this deep cave, but the promise is there! From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drinkable now, but best from 2023.

The 2020er Ölberg-Hart GG, as it is referred to on the consumer label, captures one’s attention with some beautifully refined and aromatic notes of almond cream, herbs, spices, candied grapefruit, anise, and Conference pear. The wine develops great juicy presence which gives it depth and complexity, while the finish is more restrained but also zesty and spicy. It proves still compact but the overall complexity at play is superb. There is a little bit more presence and intensity in the very long finish, so that we would opt to enjoy it rather in its youth. Drink 2024-2028.
