Keller Riesling Von Der Fels Rheinhessen Trocken 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

93+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2012 von der Fels bottling has been boosted with two barrels of Abtserde and one barrel of Morstein Riesling from a parcel of thirty year-old vines, and this is clearly the finest vintage I have yet tasted of this superb cuvée. The brilliant nose soars from the glass in a blaze of tangerine, sweet grapefruit, a nice touch of wild yeasts, kaleidoscopic minerality, lemongrass, incipient notes of petrol and a touch of citrus peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and youthfully complex, with Grosses Gewächs depth in the mid-palate this year, great focus and grip and a very, very long, still quite young and racy finish. This is an absolutely stunning wine in 2012 and clearly shows that the fireworks at Weingut Keller start way below the level of the GG's this year! 2017-2040. (Mar/Apr 2013)
