#Keller #Riesling #Kabinett "#Hipping" (#Auction)--as Klaus Peter poured me this remarkable wine, he said, "This is Maria's wine!" I believe him... what a treasure to mark the birth of your daughter! Sourced from red clay soils on the slopes of #Nierstein overlooking the #Rhein... extremely opulent, explosive aromas, packed with power, but also such finesse... reminiscent of a lovely Mosel Riesling. The balance is uncanny... so elegant, gossamer, the essence of spring. Like a beautiful Monarch butterfly!

The #German #dry wine industry has learned a lot in the past two decades and one aspect is how to deal with #Rieslings innately high acidity. #1997 was a very fine year throughout the various regions, but this is drying out and was clearly not intended for long-term aging in excess of 10 years.
It made a decent partner to food, but not as a straight sipping wine. A modest amount of residual sugar would have created a more balanced wine. #LangwerthvonSimmern #RauenthalerRothenberg #Riesling #Kabinett #Rheingau — 7 years ago
Vintage 2011 - Give a kabinett 4 to 6 years and the wine looses its youthfull turbulence to develop a friendly roundness and harmony that's terrific! This wine has an excellent balance, nice acidity next to a comforting sweet touch. And only 7,5 degrees alcohol, why it's such an appropriate choice on a hot summerday. #mosel #ürzig #kabinett #riesling #loveit — 6 years ago
Here is what we mean by great #Rheingau #Riesling--timeless wines that, when well-balanced like this one, are capable of giving years of pleasurable drinking. #1991 was not exactly a banner year, and coming on the heels of the great 1990 vintage it was easily overshadowed. However, as in Burgundy, the quantities were small but the wines have turned put surprisingly well--PROST! #SchlossSchönborn #BergSchlossberg #Riesling #Kabinett — 7 years ago
In many ways this was the wine of the night...a perfect expression of what truly great #German #Riesling is all about: fruit, acidity, ripeness, minerality all rolled into one...never mind that #PrincessCharlotte of England and I share the same birthday of May 2nd, but more importantly this is very serious wine to lay down for my daughter, Maria Katharina, who arrived a few months later! #Keller #Hipping #Riesling #Kabinett — 6 years ago
#Keller #Riesling #Kabinett "#Limestone"--if this was the only wine I tasted at Keller, I'd pronounce the vintage #2015 a great success! Gentle fruitiness and subtle sweetness... super mineral, floral, awesome acidity and overall balance... citrus notes... dances on the palette... incredibly attractive and it isn't even a marquee wine--OMG!!! #Rheinhessen — 6 years ago
Landgraf von Hessen is now known as Prinz von Hessen, but the estate is the same. Bone-dry, sleek and saline, it cries out for smoked salmon or even a soft cheese. Drink now. It won't improve. #LandgrafvonHessen #PrinzvonHessen #1989 #Riesling #Kabinett — 7 years ago
