About the Producer: 

"Keller is the leading producer in Germany’s Rheinhessen region and one of the most celebrated vintners in all of Germany, known for being a meticulous viticulturist first and foremost. After more than a decade of age, this ’07 is like a just-opened flower, with a long way still to go before it starts to wilt. For all the nomenclature on its label, it defies classification—in the best way possible. If you’re a German Riesling hound, it’s an absolute must-have!" 

Tasting Notes: 

"Today’s wine, which was fermented and aged in old oak vats called fuder, managed to achieve such astounding ripeness and concentration while still maintaining an electric charge of freshness. This is a real “wow” wine: palate-coating yet refreshing; dense and weighty yet just 7.5% alcohol; richly fruited and sweet yet profoundly earthy. At 10+ years of age it’s displaying an amber-orange shimmer in the glass, with explosive aromas of ripe nectarine, bruised yellow peach, candied citrus peel, honeysuckle, dried herbs and flowers, chopped hazelnuts, and petrol. It is surely at the full-bodied and viscous end of the auslese scale but leaves less residual sugar behind than you might expect: the sweetness is perfectly modulated. If you were to pair it with a dessert, choose something that isn’t sticky-sweet so the wine can shine, but otherwise don’t be shy about pairing it with savory dishes: aged hard cheese would be good, as would Indian dishes incorporating a little bit of heat. I think this Dalsheimer Hubacker Auslese would be lights-out delicious with chicken “tikka masala.” A game-changer!"
