Reviews 91-92 points Wine Advocate "...offers a ripe, yet precise, fresh, well-focused and rather coolish Pinot aroma; it shows some very discreet toast and mocha flavors highlighting the wild blackberry and dark cherry aromas. Full-bodied, ripe and concentrated on the palate, this is an intense and juicy, almost charming Pinot Noir from low yielding vines on limestone bedrock (21 hectoliters per hectare). The finish is intense and powerful, but well structured due to the stems on which the wine fermented for 21 days. (SR)" 92 points Vinous "Morello cherry hauntingly garlanded in buddleia and freesia and tinged with nutmeg and licorice makes for a head-turning aromatic display and anticipates the layered complexity on a brightly juicy, animated, sleek palate. Cherry pit piquancy, stony kisses, and a hint of barrel lend further counterpoint to this promising Pinot’s alluring finish. (DS)"

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.
