2018 Keller Gruner Silvaner Trocken

Rheinhessen, GERMANY
$37. 99
$455.88 Dozen
Cellar: Drink now - 4 Years (2019-2023)
ABV: 11.5%
Closure: Diam Cork

Brilliant almost water like coloured core with a distinctive tinge of green to the edges. Elevated ripe lime and green apple aromas laced with a touch of spice are followed by some mandarin and subtle flinty mineral notes. Zingy citrus and mandarin flavours sit over lime and green apple elements. Finishes dry with a lingering stony minerality. Long tangy aftertaste with zippy acidity sitting underneath.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Alc. 11.5%

Other Reviews….
As much as I approve of DIAM corks in concept, they sure are a pain in the arse to get back into a bottle neck. This wine would go very well under a screwcap. Just saying.
Pretty much never a bad wine from Keller, at all price points, and no change here. It’s a wine of interest and personality. It’s flecked with pleasant green herb things lending perfume, kohlrabi or daikon, juicy lemon drizzled green pear, and aniseed too. Mouth-watering acidity, a precise feel and understated fruitiness, quartz-like texture, saline and brisk through the finish. Racy and so worthy. It makes me feel like eating Yum Cha. Drink 2019-2025.
