Klaus Peter Keller's quality has been superb for many years now, but small production met with rapidly growing interest is a bit of a nightmare scenario as a retailer. Alas, Keller is a case in point for how U.S. consciousness on Riesling has exploded.
Germany's Rheinhessen is home to some of the most masterful dry Rieslings on earth. Keller's value dry Riesling, the QBA Trocken, is the perfect place to turn first, with the grandeur of the GG's reserved for special occasions. At $38 per bottle, Keller's skill is made crystal clear at a fraction of the price of his great growths.
Jancis Robinson's expertise crosses an infinite array of regions and producers, and the quote (featured above) turned many heads toward the Rheinhessen since its publishing in 2008. People pay close attention to declarations at this level. Whether you regularly turn to Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, or even White Burgundy, Keller's dry example of Germany's celebrated grape variety is worth your immediate attention.
