Reviews 94 points Vinous "Bright lime and grapefruit are allied with a vivid impression of chalk suffusion, intimated on the nose and then featured on a silken palate. The sense of sheer extract-richness here is formidable. But whereas I tend to think of the mineral character promoted by Kirchspiel – especially in a vintage with high acidity – as conducive to severity and austerity, the texture and generous juiciness on display in this instance make for a Riesling that is infectiously approachable even at this early stage. Chalky and ashen notes lend intrigue while salinity serves for saliva-inducement on a gripping, vibrant, not to mention downright refreshing finish. (DS)" 94 points John Gilman "The 2017 Keller Kirchspiel GG is another outstanding wine, but it had the bad luck to have to follow in the wake of the otherworldly Pettenthal in the tasting this year. The nose here is refined and complex, offering up scents of tangerine, pink grapefruit, a superb base of limestone minerality, spring flowers, a hint of petrol, citrus peel and a gentle dollop of wild yeasts in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, vibrant and nascently complex, with impeccable balance, bright acids and excellent focus and grip on the very long, snappy finish. (JG)"
