Ferocious. Blazing acidity, richness and the dry extract for which Keller Rieslings are famous. The lime leaf, lemongrass and galangal elements are secondary to a palpable salinity. For me, possibly the most complete Keller Trocken since the 2010. Extraordinary. #keller #riesling #rheinheissen

Crunchy, crunchy minerals. Ripe lime and lemongrass. Lemon balm. Dry extract, m+ to high acid. Excellent length. And to think this is his entry level wine. (!)

Coming off the more-is-more 2015 vintage this might be disappointing. It's not. It's as it ever is - racy, deeply mineral, full of citrus and saline and electric energy. Yes, dialed back to 9.5 and still perfectly balanced and alive. Great value.

Ascetic, elegant, sharp. Lots of lemon, citrus, pear, stone. Salt. Serious complexity.

Medium intensity Apple and pear on the nose. Reminiscent of stones and minerals. Medium body with great texture. Citrus, mostly lime, well balanced medium plus acid. Nice hints of sweetness in the aftertaste that brings back the characteristics of the nose. Would buy again!

Reminiscent of a very (very) good Clare Valley Riesling. Austere, flinty and hints of lime. Love Keller...

This wine came in with a lot of high hopes, and man, every one was met. Elegant, powerful, and racy. Nose full of lemon blossoms, palate teeter-tottering between acid and fruit, an exciting wine with loads of Salt, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, ending with a zesty, salty-limey finish. Very pretty wine.
