If you want to dive into the wonderful world of Keller, and don’t want to shell out hundreds of dollars a bottle, then ‘of the rock’ is maybe the best place to be.’
This seems a more searing, intense and tightly wound wine than the more approachable (and highly gluggable) 2013. Pink grapefruit and lemon rind, pleasant whiff or mineral oil/petrol, almost an orange oil or tangerine perfume and subtle cheesiness. Pure and mouth-watering, distinct stony texture and flavour, racy citrus and tart green apple. Finish is almost wince-inducing, yet strangely pleasurable, and certainly long. This should be a mighty wine with a decade or so of bottle age.

"Rheinhessen riesling of purity and elegance. Apple, kaffir lime and slate aromas give zest and interest, and the intense palate is nicely sustained, finishing vibrant and tingly."Huon Hooke, Sydney Morning Herald
