Abts E de Riesling 2011

2011’s from Keller are simply electric and Abtserde, my favorite bottling is absolutely stunning in this vintage. Abtserde has the power and exoticism of Hubacker and the intense minerality of Morstein. The full package. And each are showcased here seamlessly. After a short decant it’s bursting with intense juicy layers of stone fruits, wet stones and key lime. The palate is ripping with citrus inflicted acids, killer vibrancy, texture and stunning length. And still so young! Amazing future. — 24 days ago

Weissburgunder 2019


Subdued & a bit shy. Fresh pastry dough, underripe pear, a hint of marcipan. And yet, so fresh, cool, mineral, with a pleasant herby whiff. Enticing.
On the palate - what a mouthfeel! There’s creaminess, there’s weight & satisfying fullness yet the whole seems almost weightless! Almost devoid of fruit, yet nothing is missing. And then there’s the structure holding everything in place - zingy acidity, a bare hint of tannins, a delicious savoury backdrop, cool minerality. Refined and very long.
And all this with barely 12.5%alc, making it so dangerously drinkable.
Damn, he makes fine wine!!

9.8

Wow. Just wow. This nose has unlimited depth. Huge dark cherries. Black. Red. Dark red. Stunning limestone. Blackberry as well. Just huge, dense, but serene. Spice. A new nuance every time I stick my large nose in the glass. Palate is painfully intense and has a kaleidoscopic intensity. Ungodly sweet fruit and a huge limestone mineral wash but in classic Holle fashion this is around 10% of its potential upon opening and the finish is again clipped like the 19 Holle Riesling. The nose has almost a macerated cherry effect. The balance and length are perfect but it’s a donut wine right now with a big gaping hole in the the middle. It will bialyize soon. The nose is at a 9.7 now. I know the palate will catch up. The nose has some of the most stunning fruit ever. Truly wow. The finesse is starting as are the sweet inner mouth aromas and the tannins are sweet and so fine. Really profound length and such a finesse. I can see why Piggott gave this 99. I’m not quite there yet but I might with air. Getting super tangy and even more black cherry fruited. What a finish. Sneakily long. 9.6 to 9.8 with air. Just so elegant and seamless. Mind blowing. — a month ago
