An amazingly concentrated dry riesling that somehow manages to be extraordinarily light-footed.

An amazingly concentrated dry riesling that somehow manages to be extraordinarily light-footed. There's a super-wide spectrum of aromas from parsley through lemon grass, with ripe white peach, mandarin orange and white chocolate in between. The breathtaking balance is more important than all of this, extending right through the incredibly long, lingering finish. Drink any time during the next thirty years!

(94-96) The 2016 Ried Kellerberg Riesling Smaragd opens very pure, intense and flinty, with concentrated stone fruit aromas oh the nose. Rich and intense on the palate, this is an elegant, pure, finessed and very mineral... (94-96) The 2016 Ried Kellerberg Riesling Smaragd opens very pure, intense and flinty, with concentrated stone fruit aromas oh the nose. Rich and intense on the palate, this is an elegant, pure, finessed and very mineral Riesling with perfect mango aromas and piquant acidity. Very salty and tight, with great concentration and a persistent aromatic finish, this is a terroir-driven and age-worthy Kellerberg, a truly great wine! Tasted as a sample in July 2017, three weeks before the scheduled bottling. -Stephan Reinhardt

Intriguing flavors of bergamot, cardamom, stone and spice mark this seductive, vibrant Riesling. Slim, yet expressive and complex, with a delicate frame and an elegant feel. Shows wonderful integration and harmony... Intriguing flavors of bergamot, cardamom, stone and spice mark this seductive, vibrant Riesling.
