Keller Riesling Trocken Rheinhessen 2018
Regarded the best producer in Germany’s Rheinhessen region, Klaus-Peter Keller took over his family’s estate in 2001, focusing on single-vineyard, old vine Riesling. Dubbed the ‘Montrachets of Germany,’ these wines are known for their complexity, weight, & texture. The 2018 ‘Trocken’ is vinified bone-dry, creating a versatile, food-friendly wine full of tart stone fruit and wet rock notes, marked by lemon-lime acidity and pronounced minerality.
A versatile contender for ‘Greatest White Wine Grape in the World’ honors this German icon is not only insistently aromatic and mineral-rich but thrillingly acidic even at “sweet” ripeness levels.More wines with this grape
