2015 Keller Abts-E Riesling Trocken Grosse Gewachs - Rheinhessen, Germany 🇩🇪- 5.0⭐️
2.5 ha acquired in '96. Ripens later than Morstein.
Lemon, grapefruit, subtle tangerine, hay (like Chablis), chalky minerality and a heady note of bee pollen.
Full bodied, dense, powerful and suave, has a lightness that defies belief. Intense, effortless fine acidity and the mineral punch on the finish that echoes all Keller dry rieslings. 13.0% - AUD$353. Gives the G-Max a run for its status as the worlds greatest dry Riesling. --------------------
2015 Keller Morstein Riesling Trocken Grosse Gewachs - Rheinhessen, Germany 🇩🇪 -5.0⭐️ A 1.4 ha holding purchased in 2001; vines like AbstE are later to ripen - here due to exposure to cooling winds. Soil is limestone with heavier clay.
Taut, elegant and coiled with inner energy.
Lemon, apple pips, chalky talc notes, wet stone minerality, very, very pure.
The palate is a sequence of tension/drive, acidity/fruit and a drying phenolic grip/mineral laced vibrancy. Stunning example of Riesling. 13.0% Alc. AUD$410
