2016 Keller Grosses Gewächs: Hubacker & Kirchspiel

Posted by Joe Salamone

Across the board, Keller turned out an amazing collection of 2016s.

The wines possess an unmistakable brilliance. They are crystal clear with delineated stony minerality and a beautifully finessed length.

Today, we're very happy to offer Keller's 2016 Hubacker and Kirchspiel Grosses Gewächs.

With each passing year, Keller's wines get harder and harder to find in quantity. There are only two listings for each of the wines in the U.S.

They are some of the grandest and most statuesque Rieslings. It's impossible to not take notice of the wines.

The 2016 Hubacker is thrilling. It's typically the most muscular of Keller's GGs. In 2016, Hubacker has an incredible precision and class. Over the past five or so vintages we've seen an increasing refinement in Hubacker and the 2016 represents a high point.

Kirchspiel is always the most decidedly mineral member of the Grosses Gewächs line-up. We love the tactile salty verve that Kirchspiel possesses. The 2016 is a very gripping, poised and finessed version of the wine.

As is always the case with Keller, we wish we had more. A pretty modest quantity is on offer. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
