"A liter of the raciest, most energetic and appealingly mineral-driven Riesling imaginable. That unique Pfalzer character—a fat, sunny, mouthfilling style—shines 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 site in our experience 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)!" ~ Importer Note
Kimich was established in 1758 and today Franz and his son Matthias represent the seventh and eighth generation. The winery's holdings consist of 12 hectares of vineyards in Deidesheim, Forst and Ruppertsberg. Soils are a fantastic mix of sandstone, basalt boulders, lime, loess and clay, contributing to the complexity of the wines made here. Kimich practices sustainable farming.

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%).
