2005 Weingut Keller Riesling von der Fels

2005 Weingut Keller Riesling von der Fels tonight. I served this with pan fried grouper and yuzu/lemon butter sauce. The wine is really nice despite the extremely gnarly and moldy cork. As one would expect, this shows the typical gasoline/diesel aroma and profile of aged Riesling, but also ripe apple and peach. Still super fresh in some ways with a tiny amount of effervescence and rip-roaring acidity. Absolutely lovely and my last bottle consumed at an opportune time in the wine’s life cycle.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
