Good white wine in tall bottles


Both the peanut gallery and I know that good white wine comes in tall bottles.  For those with patience and cellars, you must age some bottles of the 2013 Weingut Keller, Riesling Trocken, von der Fels, Rheinhessen.  Made using fruit sourced from younger vines located in top vineyards this wine offered up lush aromas.  The wine shows all the right components and balance in the mouth but is currently in a young, closed state.  While the Keller ages you should drink the 2013 Weiser-Kuenstler, Riesling (Feinherb),  Mosel. The ripe fruit is very lively, delivered with good texture, and noticeable acidity.  There is a lot going on here and at only 10% alcohol, you can see the bottle to the end or drink it unmarred over the work week.   These wines were purchased at MacArthur Beverages.

2013 Weingut Keller, Riesling Trocken, von der Fels, Rheinhessen – $36
Imported by vom Boden.  Alcohol 12.5%.  The color was a light, yellow straw.  The light nose revealed lush aromas of floral fruit.  The wine begins with lively fruit in the mouth that dissipate into white and yellow fruit mixed with chalk notes.  This young wine has a clean profile, some tartness on the sides of the tongue, and a floral finish.  It remained somewhat closed so I would cellar it for the short-term.  ***(*) 2016-2026+.

2013 Weiser-Kuenstler, Riesling (Feinherb),  Mosel – $25
Imported by vom Boden.  This wine is 100% Riesling sourced from old, ungrafted vines which was raised in stainless steel.  Alcohol 10%.  There were lively flavors of ripe and tart yellow lemon fruit.  The clean fruit remained lively on the tongue with firmer, drier flavors in the finish, acidity noticeable on the back of the throat, and a long textured aftertaste.  *** Now – 2016.
