Beschrijving

Morstein: De gemiddelde leeftijd van de wijnstokken waar de rieslingdruiven voor de von der Fels vandaan kwamen, was nog nooit zo hoog als in 2018. Deze wijnstokken staan ook nog eens in de beste Grand Cru-wijngaarden van Keller zoals Morstein, Kirchspiel en Abtserde. Combineer dit geweldige druivenmateriaal met het talent en kunde van KP Keller en je weet dat dit iets bijzonders is.
Toen Felix de 2018 jaargang proefde in maart viel hem weer op hoe constant de kwaliteit is bij Keller. Uiteraard, de Grosse Gewächse zijn uitzonderlijke wijnen. Echter, wanneer je de von der Fels proeft, dan proef je een wijn die hier qua kwaliteit heel dicht bij ligt. Grote klasse!

Professional reviews:

John Gilman (View from the Cellar): “The 2018 von der Fels Riesling Trocken is magnificent this year and is probably the very finest bargain in the universe of dry Rieslings in all of Germany in this vintage! The wine offers up a beautifully pure and vibrant bouquet of pink grapefruit, tart orange, chalky minerality, dried flowers, citrus peel, a dollop of wild yeasts and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, precise and impressive tensile for the vintage, with a great core, superb elegance and focus, outstanding backend mineral drive and a very long, very pure and complex finish. Great juice. 2023-2060+.” 93/100 pts

Mosel Fine Wines (David Rayer & Jean Fisch): “The 2018er Riesling Trocken von der Fels comes only from Grand Cru sites, essentially from the Westhofener Kirchspiel and was fermented down to bone-dry levels (below 3 g/l of residual sugar). It is still very on the primary side on the nose, where residual scents from the spontaneous fermentation only gradually give way to almond cream, yellow peach, cassis, pear and spices. It proves nicely juicy and fruity on the palate, yet leaves a racy and vibrating feel in the bone-dry finish. A touch of tartness emerges in the after-taste which still needs to mellow away, something which will happen in a decade or so. It could then easily exceed our high expectations. 2028-2038+” 92+/100 pts

Jancis Robinson: “If I had to choose one wine to show how great dry German Riesling can be I would choose a Keller Riesling. Those wines are the German Montrachets”
