Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "The auction-destined 2007 Westhofener Abts.er.de Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule brims with pineapple, grapefruit, soursop, and white raisins, laced with honey, caramel, and almond paste. Impressively creamy in texture; seamlessly and single-mindedly ripe, it comes off as something like a hypothetical cross between un-oaked Barsac and a Mosel Beerenauslese. (DS)" 93 points Vinous "Pale gold. Rich aromas of quince, plum, pine nuts and lemon oil, along with a touch of honeyed botrytis. The soft, creamy papaya fruit is framed by just enough vibrant spice. Finishes with grip and true distinction. (JP)"

About Weingut Keller
Keller's grand cru Rieslings are powerful and dense yet possess an elegant and refined beauty. The wines exhibit remarkable concentration, detailed fruit flavors, and a distinct minerality that makes them truly unforgettable. Beyond dry GGs, Keller produces outstanding Scheurebes, Rieslaners, Sylvaners, Auslesen, BA, and TBAs. This is a testament to Klaus Peter's affinity for the Mosel-style wines, influenced by his mother's heritage.
Keller's pursuit of excellence extends to the production of Spätburgunder. The rolling hills of the Rheinhessen, reminiscent of Burgundy's Côte d'Or, provide a favorable terroir for these captivating Pinots. Klaus Peter's passion for Burgundy is evident, as he visits the region often, and counts legends like Hubert Lignier and Eric Rousseau as friends.
Klaus Peter has made subtle changes in the cellar over the years but has really prioritized quality vineyard work. Fermentation occurs in old oak fuders, utilizing indigenous yeasts whenever possible. Extended skin contact and lees aging also contribute to the wines' deep, layered complexity.
Klaus Peter Keller's commitment to quality and innovation has garnered him a cult-like following. His wines, often compared to Burgundy's top Grand Cru whites, continue to evolve and improve with age, offering a harmonious balance of power, elegance, and refined delicacy.
