Reviews 92 points Vinous "Subtle aromas of white peach, pine nuts and lime, with a hint of persimmon. Crisp structure, delicate weight and invigorating nectarine fruit animate the palate. Salty minerality provides charming length. This is the most feminine of the estate's dry rieslings and one of the most approachable in its youth. (JP)" 95 points John Gilman "The bouquet offers up a classic blend of pink grapefruit, tart orange, crystal clear minerality, wild yeasts, dried flowers, citrus peel and the customary touch of beeswax in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure in personality, with a fine core, excellent focus and grip, vibrant acids and lovely length and grip on the nascently complex and utterly seamless 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.
