2020 Weingut Keller Westhofen Brunnenhauschen "Abts Erde" Riesling Grosses Gewachs, Rheinhessen, Germany

A superb array of pink grapefruit, blood orange, pure limestone minerality, dried flowers and a touch of citrus zest. The palate is complex and full-bodied, with stunning mineral driven and perfectly integrated acids and a stunningly long finish.



Brunnenhäuschen is the larger vineyard from which this wine comes. The old parcel within, known as “Abtserde,” can no longer be named on the label, which explains why Klaus-Peter labels this wine Abts E®.

Here the limestone soils are enriched by clay and iron oxide which enhances the spicy character of riesling. The wine is very dense and concentrated with terrific minerality, and a rich touch of noticeable sweetness.


"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.
