Reviews 93 points Vinous "Piquancy of apple pip, peach kernel and walnut are already signaled in the penetratingly high-toned nose, and when allied to chalky, stony, iodine notes make for a pithy, austere sort of palate concentration. There is an expansively mouthfilling as well as palpably extract-rich impression but at the same time generous juiciness of lemon and grapefruit, apple and white peach, plus remarkable lift and animation that follow into a vibrantly sustained, focused finish. (DS)" 96 points John Gilman "...with kaleidoscopic minerality, stunningly pure fruit and great complexity and breed. The complex nose soars from the glass in a melange of tart orange, apple, a very complex base of limestone minerality, citrus peel, petrol and a lovely topnote of smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and rock solid at the core, with an utterly suave personality, ripe acids and great length and grip on the pure and electric 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.
