2019 Keller Hubacker Riesling Grosses Gewachs
From yellow-colored limestone soils in Keller's monopole since 1789, the 2019 Hubacker Riesling GG opens pure, flinty and spicy on the very intense yet refined nose with lemon, herbal and yeasty tones. This is pure, vital or almost racy on the palate, which is an excellent counterpoint to the suppleness and richness of this Hubacker that displays mandarin and white peach aromas. The wine is silky, fresh and juicy but also enormously mineral and tensioned, with impressive grip and length. I have never had a Hubacker at such a high level. Drink 2020 - 2043.

Ripe and succulent, this generous dry riesling is so easy to enjoy, but also has so much depth and finesse. Stunning apricot, pineapple and mineral finish. Drink or hold.
Really cool and fresh on the nose with aromas of crushed basil and mint. A hint of almond blossom makes a delicate floral contribution. The flavour of the Hubacker combines sappy herbaceous and herbal elements with subtle notes of mandarin and citrus peel, served on a creamy texture. Acidity is well integrated, just adding a slight lemony touch to the finish. Drink 2021 - 2030.
