This dry Riesling is made from grapes grown in clay, loess, and limestone rock soils, which contribute to the aromatic complexity and minerality of the wine. In the glass, this wine develops on the nose with aromas of pink grapefruit, tart peaches, chalky minerality, and a touch of petrol. On the palate, the wine is pure and elegant, with a core of bright, ripe acids and a long, complex finish.
About this wine producer: In 2001, Klaus-Peter Keller and his wife, Julia, took over his family’s estate, Weingut Keller. The Keller family has a strong interest in the history of the local vineyards, and many of their vineyards are previously forgotten plots of excellent terroir, including Grosses Gewächs vineyards. Klaus-Peter’s parents, who became known for producing some of the best wines in the Rheinhessen region, laid a solid foundation for the future of the estate with their work in soil analysis and clonal selection. Today, Klaus-Peter has taken the estate to even greater heights, and he continues to emphasize the importance of the terroir and the regional history. He is quick to point out that “great wine would not be possible here, if it weren’t for these great limestone soils. It’s only that someone had to remember the old tradition and just make good wine.”
