“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, 2008
Klaus Peter and Julia Keller have achieved a level of fame comparable only to Egon Müller in the Saar. 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.
This wine is all in the name—Limestone—an absolutely a salty, piquant delight of a wine.
The Keller Limestone Riesling is from vineyards in Westhofen, mainly Kirchspiel. On the nose the wine displays beautiful aromas of lime mixed with spice, smoke and rocks. On the palate, theLimestoneis citrus driven with a razor sharp acidity that is balance wonderfully by a slight sweetness. Enjoy with assorted wursts, shellfish and fresh vegetables.
