From the superb Weingut Keller, terrific balance and racy energy. Ripe stone fruits, lemongrass, crushed rocks and minerals. Already drinking very nicely and improves with a decant. Was a great way to reenergize the palate after a long day of drinking.

Thought it was 07' Hubacker in our blind. Felt too opulent and a touch warm. Perhaps a bit advanced too, but not in a bad way - it has shed a lot of it's suphidic characters on the nose. I also thought it might have been made in KP's older style, with that monster extract. Nevertheless, this wine was restrained by searing acidity and ruthless minerality. Very exotic and spicy on the nose and palate, with an intriguing gingery finish. The taste lingers for ages. Powerful as it may be, the 14' Kirchspiel still manages to remain fresh and lifted. If I'm being really honest with myself, this isn't my favourite iteration of Kirchspiel but it was still enjoyable. Probably needs time to bring it more balance.

Dazzling bright nose. Lemon and searing minerality. Very bright and complex and delicious.

Smooth, beautiful acidity and minerality. Slight hint of gout du petrol. I am going to save my other bottles and wait for 5 years. Outstanding
