The grapes for this wine are sourced from select younger parcels in Keller’s GG (Grosses Gewächs, or Grand Cru) vineyards. Only made in extraordinary vintages, Klaus-Peter Keller makes the call, vintage to vintage, whether his fruit is worthy of the Limestone Kabinett Riesling.
The balance of sweetness and acidity is textbook in this off-dry style. With the intensity of fruit you’d expect from a GG vineyard, the palate has that sweet-yet-tart green apple freshness, with citrus and glorious minerality.
"Bottled. Fruit from AbtsE and Kirchspiel. RS 40 g/l.
Pure, lifted lime and lemon fruit with piercing herbal freshness. Prettily scented with pure citrus on the palate. Doesn’t seem to taste much sweeter than the Limestone (non Kabinett) because of the fruit intensity. Finest of fruit, unencumbered by spice or herbs. Less complex than the Grosse Gewächse but with elegance and a dancing freshness. Unexpectedly persistent, even a little creamy on the finish despite the piercing acidity."
