That unique Pfalzer charactera fat, sunny, mouthfilling styleshines through in a completely dry yet ultra-ripe-fruited wine. Seashells blasts out of the nose along with high toned citrus and orange oil. This vineyard is the largest in Deidesheim, partly flat and partly sloped at a 20 grade, southeast facing and composed of sandy clay and red sandstone with loam topsoils and small amounts of scattered limestone. In our experience it makes terrific dry wines with crazy high acids and tensile strength. This interpretation from Kimich, a small, traditional, 8th generation estate, is an absurd value in the liter bottle (33 more wine)! 12 alcohol.

This winery was established in 1758; Franz and his son Matthias represent the seventh and eighth generation here. The winery's holdings consist of 12 hectares of vineyards in Deidesheim, Forst and Ruppertsberg, picturesque villages which lie in the shadow of the Mittelhaardt mountain range, and constitute the great winemaking heart of the Pfalz. Soils are a fantastic mix of sandstone, basalt boulders, lime and layers of loess and clay, contributing to the complexity and variety of the wines made here. Kimich refers to their vineyards as "environmentally farmed to preserve the ecological balance of the Palatinate countryside."
The 200-year-old cellar includes large old barrels as well as modern stainless tanks used for the younger, fresher cuvées. Kimich produces about 100,000+ bottles of wine a year, composed of dry wine (80%), semi-dry (15%) and sweet (5%).
