Reviews 93 points Wine Advocate "Unusually pure and mineral on the nose, the" Hubi "2013 offers rather green flavors of limes, herbs, peas, tobacco, and morels along with just a hint of pie-plant. Full-bodied, intense, piquant and penetrating mineral makes this 2013 one of, if not the most, impressive Hubackers Keller ever produced. The combination of finesse and elegance with power and persistence is really fascinating here. (SR)" 95 points John Gilman "The bouquet is lovely, offering up scents of blood orange, a touch of menthol, a bit of beeswax, lemon peel and a complex base of limestone minerality. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and very suave on the attack, with a fine core of fruit, bright acids, excellent cut and grip and a long, complex finish. (JG)"

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.
