The fruit for this wine is sourced from Keller’s GG (Grosses Gewächs, or Grand Cru) vineyard. Picked early, this wine comes from green harvested fruit. The level of residual sugar is elevated here, but the acidity needs and, demands it. The chalky, powdery limestone minerality, in sync with the acidity, creates a profound and memorable palate experience and a stage for a mouthwatering pop, pop, pop of green apple and citrus. Moreish isn’t the word.
"Bottled. RS 25 g/l.
This comes as a breath of fresh lemony air after the intensity and spice of the Grosse Gewächse. This is still a touch spicy but has more lively and immediate fruit. Purest of lemon and grapefruit and a light stony minerality, a clear limestone effect – almost chalky on the nose. Juicy, crisp lemon on the palate. Off-dry but the acidity is so high you barely notice the residual sweetness. Lively, crisp and full of pure fruit. Long, nevertheless. Notable intensity."

"A pass through the GG vineyards before harvest leads to the production of this wine. It’s a wine made by using these ‘green harvest’ bunches to produce a sum of parts kind of riesling. Holds about 18 grams per litre residual sugar and about a million grams per litre of awesome drinking.
One of those tingly, fresh, electric rieslings of crackling texture, tart acidity, strong ‘mineral character’ and a pumice-like mineral finish. This is insanely delicious. Gentle sweetness so well balanced by citrusy tang – a web of fine, lacy but steely fruit that trails so long and bright. Bravo."
