Weingut Keller Kirchspiel Riesling Grosses Gewachs 2012 - Dry
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.
