2012 Keller Hipping Riesling R

85.00

John Gilman: 94/100

“This is a brilliant wine that offers up a youthfully compelling bouquet of pink grapefruit, fresh pineapple, a beautifully complex base of slate, citrus zest, a touch of smokiness and a gentle topnote of spring flowers.”

Professional reviews:

View from the Cellar (John Gilman): “Two out of the three barrels of the Hipping destined for the Grosses Gewachs bottling did not ferment out to sufficient dryness to qualify for official Trocken status, so there is actually a bit more of the Hipping ‘R’ than there is of the GG in 2012. This is a brilliant wine that offers up a youthfully compelling bouquet of pink grapefruit, fresh pineapple, a beautifully complex base of slate, citrus zest, a touch of smokiness and a gentle topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, pure and tangy, with a great core of fruit, filigreed complexity and a very long, snappy and dancing finish. There is just a whisper of residual sugar here and this is essentially also a dry wine in 2012, but not quite under the legal limit. Great juice. 2019-2045+.” 94/100 pts
