This might just be one of the most thrilling and harmonious Gemischter Satzen I’ve yet tasted from Christ. The nose shows some candied peel and citrus, but the palate has a wonderful lifted acidity and tight, focused orchard fruits. A slatey, stony note carries the wine through to an exciting finish, and the texture has a deliciously spicy, leesy feel.
I fell in love with Gemischter Satz long ago, in large part due to this big texture – this creamy yet spicy mouthfeel, which doesn’t need opulent fruit to make it work, but does need freshness and restraint in the cellar.
A great wine.
