German Riesling,again!!

Some time ago we tasted a few different German Rieslings which left us (or at least me) wondering whether German Riesling is just not for us. The only way to find out is to try out more of the German stuff. This time I chose the basic Riesling from one of the most renowned producers who is highly praised for his intense and well-structured wines.

Keller Riesling Trocken 2008

The wine was opened and poured. In the nose it seems a little reluctant to reveal its secrets, yet a few swirls uncovers notes of grapefruit, white flowers and something in the line of wet rocks. In the mouth you instantly feel the acidity. Very stringent with lots of minerals yet to me it lacks a bit of body to cope with the acidity. The wine is highly extracted (maybe a bit too much for me), which gives you a sort of dry sensation in the mouth. The word is that this only gets even more intense in his other wines. The wine was tasted again on day 2 and 4 without much happening. A little more open in the nose but still young and very fresh.

The overall verdict of this wine is that you get an amazing wine for just 69 DKR at atomwine. Yet, due to the acidity and high extract, this wine is actually not that easy to drink in large quantities. I find that one glass of this is enough and would then like to move on to something else. But what a glass.

Til den pris (69dkk), lyder det som et rigtigt godt fund i den ellers store vinjungle.
