Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "...seems almost at pains to prove the wisdom of that choice by offering a pithy fruit skin chew and an almost gum-numbing, persimmon-like pungency, allied to tingling brightness of fresh lemon, pink grapefruit, and bitter tartness of its zest that offer a prickly rebuff to anyone anticipating immediate pleasure. This is an embryonic and severely concentrated young Riesling, though one whose energy certainly appears equal to its sheer density. (DS)" 96 points John Gilman "...soars from the glass in a blaze of grapefruit, orange, gentle notes of petrol, wild yeasts, orange peel and a profoundly complex, almost zesty base of minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very, very pure, with a rock solid core, perfect focus and balance and a very elegant, snappy and multi-faceted finish that is almost gem-like in its brilliance and precision. What a profound wine. (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.
