Our Lunar New Year celebrations kicked off with this absolute beauty hailing from one of my favourite vineyards anywhere. Kabi-like sweetness with GG-level extract! An auslese feinherb perhaps?
So fragrant. Floral, herbal, and mineral (ranging from flint to sea spray), with a melange of fruits like pineapples, candied lemons, fresh limes and even grapefruits (especially on day 3). Very pure, juicy, and salty on the palate, with an uber-long and energetic finish. I felt that this was a less structured and fruiter version of the 13’ we had not long ago, but the overall profile and my love for it was similar. — 6 days ago
Keller...whats left to say? Take a wine and turn everything up to 11 and you have Keller. Look at the colour! 2017...2017!!!! How is this possible???
Honey, honeysuckle and quince...did I say honey? This wine has an intensity that defies reason. If you have never drunk a Keller wine then do it!!! — 2 months ago

A aus Abtserde from young vines. Nose unmistakable Keller. Depth of flavour through the roof with tropical fruits lingering in the background. Strength, balance and precision. Could still taste this minutes later...wow.
Drinking this sort of wine is always a privilege and should be done with excellent friends! — 5 days ago
Unreal! Especially with sambal chicken skewers. Balanced with acidity and a bit OF RS. luxurious texture and finish. — 19 days ago
I hate it when storage and transports robs the potential of a wine away, but I hate it even more when it happens to a wine I usually adore. Such was the case here. There was just too much distracting petrol notes on the nose for a Riesling this young. Having said that, there was still lots packed into this wine, especially on the palate. Seriously structured with laser acidity, and very generous on the fruit end (as expected of Hubacker). Finish was quite long, almost exotic, with some minerality although it pales in comparison to the Mosel GG we drank this with. The others on the table certainly enjoyed the wine, though I can’t say the label didn’t help. — 2 months ago
