Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "...combines a cool restraint of melon-like fruit and overtly chalky, saline, savory mineral tones with an only nominally contradictory conjunction of creaminess and tactile impingement of tart berry skin and herbal pungency. The nose on its own is Burgundian in its aura of crushed stone, toasted hazelnuts, citrus oil, and milled grain, but the echoes of these elements on the palate are accompanied by a lusciousness of fruit and almost subliminal sense of electric charge that definitely spell Riesling. (DS)" 94 points John Gilman "The wine offers up a lovely aromatic constellation of sweet grapefruit, blood orange, a beautiful base of limestone minerality, gentle notes of petrol, lemongrass and a topnote of citrus blossoms. On the palate the wine is pure, refined and full-bodied, with a great core of fruit, zesty acids, a wide open personality and outstanding length and grip on the perfectly balanced finish. (JG)"

Klaus Peter of Weingut Keller makes revolutionary dry Riesling

About Weingut Keller

Weingut Keller, located in Germany's Rheinhessen region, has risen to great prominence under the guidance of Klaus Peter and Julia Keller. Despite being situated in the once unfavorable "Hügelland," or hill country, Keller has sparked a renaissance in the region. Overlooked, vineyards like Kirchspiel, Hubacker, Morstein, and Abtserde are now revered for Riesling production, commanding high praise for their exceptional dry wines.

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.
