2011 Keller 'Niersteiner Hipping - R' Riesling off-dry, Rheinhessen, Germany...this is the Debut bottling of Keller, from a historic, steep and red slate site. Purchased from Franz Karl Schmitt, served at the coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. This is a beautiful Riesling, technically medium-dry, but the rs content is barely noticeable. Intense aromas of ripe peaches and spiced quince. The fruit feels lush in the mouth (Spaetlese - level) without being heavy. Some stoney and smoky mineral undertones, adding complexity and tension..need to get more of this!!

Deep color , concentrated, exotic, nicely phenolic. Sweetness balanced by perfect acidity. Easy to drink but has the depth and power to live for years!
