    5/30/20, 1:58 AM - I had 5 bottles and was curios, too. This is very good right now, but will be great in 8-10 years, I think. So I will hide my remaining bottles. My recommendation: Drink one and bury the rest.
    On the second day open it was much better than on day one.

AP 23 06. Interestingly enough, the AP number differs from the version Fisch and Rayer reviewed (24 06). This GK bottling sports the Trier Versteigerung sticker and was purchased from a reputable auction house, but I'm still curious about the discrepancy.

Bottling number aside, this is stunningly rich. So much botrytis it practically reeks of cinnamon and Chinese five spice. The flavor pungency suggests a beerenauslese (more concentrated even than the 2006 Berkasteler Badstube Beerenauslese from the same vendor) although I wish I opened a standard GK bottling from this vintage alongside to compare. Honey and more of a "grapey" flavor than the high-botrytis 2006 offerings, although the spice reminds me more of Prum's Himmelreich bottlings.

I tend to shy away from inflated scoring on upper-Pradikat wines just because they leave a bigger impression, but credit is due where credit is due, and Prum did exceptionally well in this case.

    12/31/19, 4:19 AM - Ap Nr 23/06 is correct for the GKA auction. Ap Nr. 24/06 belongs to the Lange Goldkapsel auction. I have both wines in my cellar. The MoselFineWines tasting note is missing the word „Lange“.

2017 Weingut Keller Abts E® Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel Rheinhessen
Keller Open 2019 (Weingut Keller, Flörsheim-Dalsheim): This bottling shows more minerality than the Hubacker, great density, and clarity, really, really convincing, but the price tag of both Auslesen Goldkapsel, 125€ per bottle 0,375, only for KPK lovers.... ;-), 93(+) potential
