Riesling, RR, 2014

  Weingut Keller

Intensely pink grapefruit then crystalised honey , bitter citrus and salted dried verbena. Really lovely balance here, just 11 grams of sugar and 12.5 %. The wine is allowed to ferment spontaneously until it naturally comes to a halt. The longer this sits in glass the more its minerality makes itself known. The fruit for this cuvee comes from vines planted on the redder, more iron rich soils in the Kirchspiel vineyard.

Contains Sulphites.

About Weingut Keller

One of Germany’s truly great estates, we are delighted to offer Keller’s wines for the first time as of the 2007 vintage. Since the late eighties, Klaus Keller has rapidly gained a very serious reputation for making top flight German Riesling in both dry, fruity and sweet styles. More recently, Klaus’s son Klaus-Peter has joined the team after completing his wine-making studies at Geisenheim and is helping to drive quality forward even further. As with any top producer worth his salt, Keller believes good vineyard management is the key to success. Based in the Rhinehessen, where the wines have more generosity and richness than in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer or even Nahe, the Kellers are able to produce some of Germany’s most complete dry wines in addition to wonderful fruity and sweet late harvest styles

Appellation: Rheinhessen

The Rheinhessen lies with the crook of the Rhine to the north and east, the Nahe to the west, Pfalz to the South and the Rheingau to the North over the river. Keller crafts his fabulous dry, fruity and sweet wines here, where the vines produce more generosity and richness than in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer or even Nahe.
