  • Started with petrol that softened up. Green apple. Lemon. Wonderful texture.

  • Opened in HK. Slow-oxed for a short while before serving.

    Probably should have breathed this more, and definitely should have been served colder in better glasses, but hey - just wasn't that kind of night. Still, an excellent showing for Keller, consistently great as always, and probably my preferred terroir compared to the Hubacker '16 I had recently. Lovely to share with B, Y and T!

  • Yeah, really like the way this is right now. Quite consistent with a bottle last year, where you get almost a bit of lychee spice on the nose. This feels like it might even has a little botrytis in it, given how spicy it is. Broad and opulent, with plenty of (seemingly) sweet tropical fruit on the palate. Delicious.

  • This is a very typical and refined Keller I believe. The core of citrus fruit, tropical fruit, minerals, hints of flowers and a barely noticeable note of petrol. Deep, long finish and lots of dry extract. No signs of ageing at all.

  • This was an absolute stunner on pop and pour - incredibly floral nose and wonderful tropical notes of peaches, and razor sharp minerality on the palate that had a stupendously long finish. Had next to a '18 Schloss Liesler Wehlener Sonnenuhr GG and it was quite apparent that this is on a different level in terms of quality and winemaking (but it probably wasn't a fair comparison to begin with).

    That being said, it randomly shut down about 2 hours after opening. As a good friend had told me - either drink them young or drink them 10 years later - or pop and pour (but drink fast). It lost a lot of the delicate floral aromas that were present on opening (I am mostly positive it was not palate fatigue) at this time. But this is still a dry Riesling from Keller so the pedigree is there, so it is hard to say this wine did not meet expectations (it most clearly did). I just wish I actually listened to my friend instead.
