2003 Weingut Keller Hubacker Riesling Großes Gewächs
Community Tasting Notes 6

March 24, 2017 - Not that huge as last year, still nice mango, pineapple and citrus in nose and palate but in the middle palate a bit too broad, the finish is long but not that precise, still a great wine for this vintage. Many dry Rieslings from 2003 are haggard but this example will survive at least 5-7 years, not 97 but great 94

December 20, 2015 - A great suprise in this hot vintage. For me at his top. I think it won't get better, ripe yellow and tropical fruits as pineapple, passionfruit and peaches. Perfectly balanced acidity, not too low as in many other 2003's. Drink it over 2 hours without decantation. What a sublime wine. 95-96

for 2003 a vibrant acidity, pleasant minerality, but a little bit fullbodied, exotic fruits, typical Keller notes in the finish, not totally elegant as usually known

April 25, 2013 - 2003 Dry Riesling - Ten years after - Part Two: Light yellow. In the nose, this is instantly recognizable as Keller, very intensive, chalky, stony, fresh, linear and monolithic. Not fruit, just some pineapple. Maybe, it's lacking a bit of sensuality, but it is pretty damn fascinating. On the palate, it's juicy with nice minerality, acidity and balance, chalky again, harmonic, but not with much fat on the rips, very precise. Long.

April 18, 2013 - Brilliant golden-yellow in the glass.
Dominant floral aromas of Viola and Sunflower paired with Hey.
Some warm Citrus and Fresh Herbs. Scents of Honey, Caramel and Toast.
Elegant, but multilayered and sophisticated!
The flavors are driven by soft Herbs and Spices, like Curry. Reminds me of Gingerbread with Traces of Orange zest and Cinnamon.
Finishes medium-long with nice acidity, Spices, Pepper and Anise.
Complex and perfectly balanced! Maybe lacking some midpalate density.
A big and well-aged Riesling from one of Germany´s top producers!
Still quite light in color and with healthy acidity, this wine is good for many years down the road. Good structure and very interesting to drink.
