Keller 2018 "RR" Riesling, Rheinhessen, Germany

"If I had to choose one wine to show how great dry German Riesling can be I would choose a Keller Riesling. These wines are the German Montrachets."
-
Jancis Robinson, MW

Winemaker: Klaus Peter Keller

Farming: Sustainable and Organic

Variety: Riesling (slightly off-dry)

Terroir: The limited production ’RR’ comes from a tiny 0.33ha island of red soil in an ocean of limestone in the Kirchspiel vineyard. This is the  warmest section of the vineyard.

Vinification: Keller uses spontaneous fermentation and short skin-maceration for the Rieslings

Established in 1789, Keller has become the ONLY name to know in the Rheinhessen.

The RR comes from  a parcel in the Kirchspiel vineyard that is planted on red soils,  similar to the terres rouges to be found in Bonnes-Mares. This is the  warmest section of the vineyard. In contrast, the Kirchspiel GG is  limestone. The RR (=double Reserve or Really Rare) showing its best with  slightly more residual sugar than the Kirchspiel GG. It’s absolutely delicious.
