What a value! This is Keller's bargain Riesling. It consists of left-over fruit from their top vineyards. These vineyards have clay-limestone soils, not slate, and so when Riesling is made in this dry style it has more of a white Burgundy expression. Elegant and very mineral. The wine starts off with a slight spritz, which dissipates quickly, but provides a refreshing texture. The flavors are citrusy and sharp, still tight but quite enjoyable as the fruit opens up and reveals astonishing depth and minerality. This is best served at a cool room temperature rather than chilled. Enjoyable as it is now, for sure even better over the next few years.

"The 2012 Keller Riesling Trocken is a superb follow-up to the lovely 2011er, with perhaps even a touch greater precision and complexity. The deep and very classy nose offers up scents of tart orange, pink grapefruit, petrol, a complex base of limestone minerality and a topnote of orange zest. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, pure and dancing, with a great core, excellent focus and grip and a very long, complex finish. This is just a stunning value! 2014-2030+." 90/100 John Gilman, View From the Cellar
