ABOUT THIS WINE
The Nierstein Hipping is one of the best locations in Rheinhessen. Almost 0.6 hectares (the old Franz-Karl-Schmitt plot) are owned by Keller - the eastern slope slopes down more than 70% to the Rhine.
The red clay slate produces wines with fine fruit, aristocratic enamel and a particularly long shelf life.
Already at the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 a wine from this location was served from the winery FK Schmitt.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
"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.
