2017 Keller Hubacker Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel
Incredibly exotic fruit, orange, apricot, passionfruit. Super-sweet but still balanced. Just essence of sweet Riesling at the moment. Too extreme to drink now. I’ve run out of words to describe intensity.

Another outstanding example of the vintage, with lovely purity to its fruit component coupled with great acidity and chalky minerality. The nose offers up a complex blend of white peach, a hint of the yellow plum to come, limestone soil tones, citrus blossoms and an estery topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is crisp, full and succulent on the attack, with great refinement and balance, zesty acids and a long, complex and energetic finish that closes with lovely limestone mineral drive. Fine, fine juice.
