Reviews 97 points John Gilman "The 2019 Hipping Kabinett from Weingut Keller is everything one would expect from the confluence of a winegrower at the top of his game, a great vineyard site and a vintage whose characteristics are picture-perfect for Kabinetten! The gorgeous bouquet offers up scents of pear, golden delicious apple, a hint of raw almond, a gorgeous base of red slate, gently musky white flowers, bee pollen and wild yeasts. On the palate the wine is vibrant, medium-bodied and complex, with great delineation and filigree, stunning intensity of flavor, zesty acids, perfect balance and a very, very long, crystalline finish. Breathtakingly beautiful wine! (JG)"

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 supposedly unfavorable "Hügelland," Keller has sparked a renaissance in the region. Once overlooked, vineyards like Kirchspiel, Hubacker, Morstein, and Abtserde are now revered for Riesling production, commanding high prices 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 occasionally refers to them as "Red Riesling."
While the estate is renowned for its dry wines, Keller has also ventured into the northern Rheinhessen's prestigious "Roter Hang" slope, yielding superb dry and off-dry wines from legendary sites like Pettenthal and Hipping.
Klaus Peter, trained in South Africa and Burgundy, has made subtle changes in the cellar, prioritizing vineyard work. Fermentation now occurs in old oak fuders, utilizing indigenous yeasts whenever possible. Extended skin contact and lees aging also contribute to the wines' complexity.
Weingut Keller's commitment to quality and innovation has garnered them a cult-like following. Their wines, often compared to Burgundy's Montrachets, continue to evolve with age, offering a harmonious balance of power, elegance, and refined delicacy. Don't miss the exceptional wines crafted by Weingut Keller, a true gem in German winemaking.
