Description

100% Riesling. Jancis Robinson once called the Rieslings of Klaus Peter & Julia Keller, “the German Montrachets.” That is a crazy, audaucious, absurd, but absolutely true quote. In less than a decade, Keller has become one of the country’s greatest addresses. What makes this even more intriguing is that Keller is located in the Rheinhessen, one of the most maligned German winemaking regions. What’s more, they are located in what is usually considered the worst part of the Rheinhessen, the “Hügelland” – a double whammy if ever there was one. Yet Keller’s grand cru Rieslings are larger-than-life wines of incredible density and power; they are thoroughbreds. No one does better than Keller is to shape this considerable intensity into a form that is elegant, finessed, and beautiful. This is why they have a cult following and these wines are so allocated.

Tasting Notes
"Intriguing aromas of nectarine, nut oil and lemon zest, plus a touch of cinnamon. The succulent apricot fruit and textural richness are kept alive by a salty minerality that lingers tantalizingly on the finish. With perfect clarity and outstanding intensity, this is a show-stopper. One of finest dry rieslings of the vintage." - Joel B. Payne
