Decanter,

Notes of lemon, wet stones, fresh bread and white flowers introduce an extraordinarily three-dimensional, complete wine which stains the palate with minerality and lingers through an impossibly long finish. Simply the pinnacle of dry Riesling - and the only thing that keeps the Morstein and Abtserde from receiving a perfect score.

Dense, round, tight and vivacious on the palate, this is a very pure and mineral Riesling of great finesse and elegance. It is a dense and very complex, yet perfectly balanced, long and stimulatingly salty wine with an intense and persistent fruit core. A perfect blend of earlier and late harvested grapes that were slowly pressed with the basket press, like all of the crus and sweet wines at Keller.- SR collapse

More typical chalkiness ensues inner-mouth, with broadly palate-saturating pit fruit flavors allied to animating (analytically over 9 grams) acidity experienced as infectiously juicy lime and grapefruit. An incisive crunch of mustard seed adds to the nearly detonative intensity and grip of this palpably extract-rich Riesling’s finish.-DS collapse

This is a very concentrated dry riesling with a ton of "structure" (acidity and tannins) and serious mineral character, but exactly this makes it pretty massive and austere on the palate now. If you want the full "G-Max" experience I suggest waitting at least two years if not three. Failure to do so could result in very expensive disappointment! collapse
