The 2013 Riesling 'RR' from Klaus-Peter Keller came in at twelve percent alcohol, around nine grams per liter of acidity and thirteen grams per liter of residual sugar, so its overall impression is essentially of a dry wine this year. The deep and beautiful nose offers up scents of grapefruit, white cherries, wild yeasts, lemongrass, orange peel and a lovely base of minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a lovely core of fruit, a nice dollop of backend sweetness to fold into the acidity and minerality and a very long, focused and zesty finish. Lovely juice. "RR" comes from a tiny 0.33ha pocket of red soil surrounded by a sea of limestone. If anyone has established the nobility of German Riesling grown on limestone, it's Keller. Enjoy 2015-2030. The long and silky finish bears a lot of tension and makes this a serious wine for the next 20 or more years.93 Points Wine Advocate
