2020 Weingut Keller "Frauenberg" Riesling Grosses Gewachs, Rheinhessen, Germany

A powerful and tightly wound dry Riesling with serious concentration. Still a bit embryonic in the nose with mirabelle, herbal and flinty notes. However, on the palate it already pure pleasure and the long finish is supported by the intense, pure acidity.



Pure and precise. Pure limestone rock soil in the have to fight back the roots. The late maturity cares for aromatic complexity. The barren limestone soil produces unvarnished wines with fine mineral depth.


"If you want to produce fine wine, you have to know what fine wine is all about. So the first thing you have to do is travel and drink the world's finest wines. The second, work on your vineyards meticuously." So says Klaus-Peter Keller, the proprietor of Weingut Keller, arguably the top estate in all of Germany. And we couldn't agree more.

Keller's wines are some of the most sought after, and difficult to get, wines on the market today. Jancis Robinson has described his Rieslings as the "Montrachets of Germany". Not only does he make world class dry, off-dry and sweet Rieslings, but he also makes beautiful wines from "lesser" grapes such as Sylvaner and Scheurebe. Keller also pays just as much attention and puts just as much love into his everyday wines as he does to his Grosses Gewächs (Grand Cru) bottlings.
