Winemaker Notes

The VDP.Grosse Lage „Hofstück im Reiterpfad“ site is situated on the hillside directly overlooking Deidesheim and is famous for its Riesling wines. The name “Hofstück”, or “courtly piece” comes from the prince archbishop of Speyer, Lord of Deidesheim and Ruppertsberg, the former owner of the site.

James Suckling
A fabulous GG to drink now, thanks to an exotic-fruit character that's totally ripe yet so delicate, the succulence not a jot too much. Great balance through the long, very polished finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Christmann's 2015 Reiterpfad-Hofstück Riesling Trocken GG displays a lovely, deep, intense and concentrated lemon flavor with floral/herbal and some almond aromas. Very complex! Piquant and firm on the palate, this is a very elegant, compact and densely woven Riesling with a silky texture, great balance and expression. The finish is dense, aromatic and very long. This is an enormously complex Riesling to be aged for 10-15 years.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Aromas of vanilla and coriander lead to apple, lemon curd and mineral flavors in this graceful yet concentrated and expressive dry Riesling. This is powerful yet restrained, with a firm mineral undertow and a long, tactile finish. Offers impressive length. Best from 2021 through 2028.

In 1845 Prof. Dr. Ludwig Hausser and his cousin Johann Martin founded a small winery in Gimmeldingen as a hobby, and over the course of the next generation winemaking became their main profession. In 1894 Eduard Christmann married Henriette Hausser, the granddaughter of the founder. The Estate bears the name of her son Arnold, and is run in the 7th generation by Steffen Christmann.

Devotion to soil vitality and the preservation and individuality of the terroir has lead them to practice organic agriculture, strict vineyard management, and severe yield reduction. In the cellar they employ long and gentle pressing with low pressure, clarification through natural sedimentation, and a slow, not too cool fermentation sometimes until as late as June with only one filtration. Today, A. Christmann Rieslings and Pinot Noirs are widely regarded as Pfalz's finest.

This sunny and relatively dry region served for many years as a German tourist mecca and was associated with low cost, cheerful wines. But since the 1980s, it has gained a reputation as one of Germany’s more innovative regions, which has led to increased international demand.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
