Very pale lemon in colour. Tasted after the Premier Cru Hubert Lamy and similar in many ways - the texture, the acid, the citrus the subdued oak influence, but not as much minerality or salinity. Made by Sue Bell at her Bellwether winery in Coonawarra from Chardonnay grapes from the Tamar River in Tasmania. A good wine in the leaner style - showing the quality of Tasmanian Chardonnay. — 8 months ago
Often the forgotten wine of the portfolio, but it always serves as a bellwether for the vintage at Keller. And this is so typical of the sizzling, electric and concentrated wines turned out there in ‘17. Fresh milk, racy acids and elegant minerality...next level stuff! #keller #rheinhessen #pinotblanc #chardonnay — a year ago
I’m not celebrating my birthday until the weekend but it’s always nice to have something the actual day of - thank you @James Forsyth for sharing this!! It’s delicious, the black currant really makes this taste 😍 chef’s kiss, as we millennials say. Almost dangerously good, it really tastes like the black currant juice I drink in Germany.
Also thank you to @Shea Bove @Matthew Burgess @Claire Troussieux for making today fun 🥳 — 4 months ago
What a unique beer. The lime leaf and gin barrel really come through the funky wheat in such a nice way. Perfectly balanced. I could imagine this being even better in a year or two. Another winner from break side. — 10 months ago

So legit. Tough vintage for Can Franc around the lakes, but Chris and his team bucked the trend (yet again) and made a thoughtful, imaginative wine. Fruit bursts off the glass from the jump. Nice textural decision to counter the acidity with the slight carbonic effervescence. Just wish I had more. — 10 months ago
Classical mind-bender. Bellwether fair-friender. Cyclical soul sucker. Six-cylinder brain puncher. — a year ago
