Not much new to say, just great full of depth.

En Magnum...The Keller was electric and was springing from the glass with energy and aromatics. I’ve found 2016 Keller to be pretty tightly wound and not so giving. En magnum, it was so expressive. Size matters. Also, who doesn’t love Riesling mags, they look like freakin torpedos.

Always a terrific expression of Riesling. Youthful, deep and with layered complexity and nervy energy. Stone fruits, orange zest, wet stones and hints of grapefruit. It has superb tension and an ample mid-palate with a long, focused and elegant finish. Love Keller Riesling.

Riesling makers don’t get better than Keller. The king. And other than G-Max, (only had once), Hubacker is my absolute favorite and one of the best expressions of the grape on the planet.

Terribly young and needs heaps of time. The nose for me was just flooded with nose-hair-burning sulphur, even after three days of being opened. I just can't assess it. KP calls it yellow limestone, though. But the palate, I really loved. So deep, chalky, salty, and concentrated. Unripe pineapple, peach, lemon oil, orange zest, fresh-cut herbs, smoke, sea salt. So juicy and complex! Laser focus and long, elegant finish.

Elegant, refined and focused. Pineapple, lemongrass, hints of grapefruit, lime curd, wet slate and a stony minerality. The finish is long, racy and energetic with pin point precision. Fantastic now and even better down the road.

The hardest Keller GG wine to drink young in my experience. Great but see you in 7 years.

Gorgeous and refreshing, with impeccable balance. Tons of orchard fruit, lemon confit, sage and exotic floral notes. A joy to taste and drink. 😋
