2019 Keller Kirchspiel Riesling Grosses Gewachs
Keller's 2019 Kirchspiel Riesling GG opens puristic and chalky on the nose with lemon oil and woodruff aromas. Juicy, round and rich on the palate, with smooth suppleness, fine tannins and a stimulating kick on the finish, this is a less puristic but juicy and intense Riesling of great class. Drink 2023 - 2040.

Still waters run deep! Warm and ripe, yet such delicate mirabelle aromas with a ton of herbal overtones. Concentrated and well structured, but also with lovely juiciness. Then comes the long, vibrant and energetic finish that's full of spice. Drink or hold.
A pungent herbaceous nose settles down after a bit of airing into an animating green-herbal fragrance, complemented by earthy and chalky mineral notions. On the palate there are some fine nuances of citrus fruit, but the main flavour revolves around a refined combination of fresh green mint and pronounced salty minerality, supported by vibrant acidity and a delicate sprinkling of spice.
