- ABV 12.5%
- Closure: Cork
The 2016 Riesling G-Max is very pure, fresh and chalky on the nose but also concentrated and ripe. On the palate, this is a very concentrated, intense, juicy, pure, mineral, tannic and well-structured Riesling with a lot of grip, tension and salt. Just one gram of residual sugar here, so don't expect a charming Riesling classic. This G-Max has truly fine tannins but nonetheless a lot of grip and tension. Still terribly young but full of character, purity and tension. This is incredibly structured Riesling and a final score is hard to give, although it won't get worse with age.
Stephan Reinhardt - Wine Advocate #233 (Nov 2017)
Lime, fennel and sea breeze on the nose set the stage for an equally pungent display of zesty citrus, bittersweet herbal concentrate and mouthwatering salinity on an expansive, faintly oily palate. Stony undertow and glowing citrus seed piquancy extend a long, mouthwateringly salt-tinged, intensely vibrant finish of sappy concentration, even if not one boasting the transparency, multiplicity or sheer refreshment of this year’s Abtserde. At the risk of sounding churlish, and while recognizing my great good fortune in being able to taste the annual editions of Keller’s always impressive G-Max, I can’t help suspecting that the long-standing cult status and the mystique of this Riesling from a never-to-be-mentioned site are what cause German wine critics to consistently rate it as the top wine in any given Keller collection.
David Schildknecht - Vinous
The biggest and richest of the 2016 dry riesling from Keller. Great textural complexity, but this wine is also anything but heavy thanks to the super-vibrant finish that stretches out in the direction of infinity. Drink now.
A wide variety of meadow herbs bustles on the nose, supported by an intense vegetal fragrance of boxwoodand elderflower aromas. A whiff of blackcurrant blossom invites a deep intake of breath. At this early stage of the wine’s development flattering fermentation aromas still add an element of superficial stimulation, but there is an exhilarating freshness about the bouquet, which is simply a consequence of the 2016 vintage and should remain a quintessential part of its expression for years to come. A perfectly pitched acidity invigorates the taste buds and provides a sublime foil for mineral and fruity components. There is also a delicious piquancy on the finish, which should probably be attributed more to the overall composition of flavours than any single gustatory constituent.
