Product Description:

On Keller:
“If I had to choose one wine to show how great dry German Riesling can be I would choose a Keller Riesling. Those wines are the German Montrachets” – Jancis Robinson

On the Vineyard Site:
"Sourced from the red-clay/limestone soils of the Kirchspiel vineyard (Grand Cru), with 20 gr residual sugar to balance the racy acidity, great energy, off dry to dry in taste - a low alcohol miracle." -Winemaker Klaus-Peter Keller

On the 2016 Vintage:
"It is graceful overall, and also lithe, limber and lissome. It is strong when it needs to be, but it measures its strength judiciously and with restraint. It shows every aspect of superb German Riesling...it is neither a fruit driven nor floral driven nor mineral driven nor acid driven vintage – it is all of these. Whatever you like about these wines, you’ll find it in plenitude...You need to cherish qualities of serenity, moderation and grace to appreciate this vintage. In its gentle luminosity it shows everything we look for – it’s fervently mineral, markedly salty, replete with fruits and flowers and herbs, and shows a clear and visible intricacy...I find it nearly perfect, with gazelle grace but with the gazelle’s sinewy energy when it wishes to leap and run." -Terry Theise on the 2016 German Vintage

"In Rheinhessen, Rieslings in particular benefited from the ideal autumn and displayed pronounced aromas – the excellent aromatic ripeness is, according to the experts, the secret of the 2016 vintage." -German Wine Institute
