Vinous: “This is another (counting Keller’s) Pettenthal Kabinett that, thanks to the absurd VDP Rheinhessen prejudice against wines bearing this Prädikat, is not allowed to indicate its vineyard of origin, and so is named “from steep slopes.” It follows that this must be a weakling of a wine and not indicative of any particular sort of steep slopes, let alone of the outstanding vineyard in which it was grown. Right: now can we get real instead? Mint-tinged, entirely site-typical tangerine and orange brightly inhabit a lean, buoyant palate, leading to a vibrant and refreshing finish invigoratingly tinged with citrus pip piquancy, black tea smokiness and bacon-like saline, animal savor. Despite harboring (at 40 grams) nearly as much residual sugar as the corresponding Spätlese, this comes off with demure and adeptly integrated sweetness.” 91/100 pts
