It would be no exaggeration to say Weingut Keller consistently produce the finest dry Rieslings in the world, a fact proven year after year since Klaus-Peter Keller took over the reins from his father in 2001. Along with his wife Julia, Klaus-Peter has continued to prioritise the quality of dry wine produced at the estate, and these are now some of the most sought after and collected wines on the planet.

Other Reviews....
Lovely fresh pear and pear blossom aromas. Excellent concentration with a wonderful freshness that doesn’t come from acidity (which is modest). The finish is long and silky with an underlying stoniness. From the Kirchspiel and Steingrube sites. Drink or hold.

Tank sample. 45-year-old vines just below Abtserde. Upper part is red soil with high iron and limestone content.
Highly mineral first impression but with a real depth on the palate, a spice in both texture and flavour. Spicy pear contrasts with immense freshness, like a super-charged Muscadet. Great length and concentration. The best village-level Sylvaner I have tasted. The fruit is not easy to describe because it is not what I would call a 'fruity' wine but it has so much depth of fruit. Drink: 2023-2030.
