Weingut Keller en primeur

Back to producer list Grower profile Although they escaped the April frost, a severe hailstorm on 25th August hit Westhofen and destroyed a year's work in just under a minute: Morstein, Abst. E. and parts of Kirchspiel were affected. Had it continued to rain, the damaged berries would have rotted, infecting the healthy ones along the way, and written off the entire crop. Fortunately the next few weeks were dry, and the damaged berries dried up and dropped to the ground. The vines devoted their energy to the remaining ones, which gained particular aromatic complexity. Cool nights at the end of September fixed the acidity, and although yields were down 80%, the quality is quite astonishing.

2017 RIESLING trocken (KELL03217A)
From vineyards in Westhofen, mainly Kirchspiel, this is a featherlight, stony and citrus-driven wine which is so fresh, breezy and delightful that you will wonder where it went so quickly.

2017 WESTHOFEN Auslese [19 18] (KELL27217B)
From vines in the Morstein and Absterde. There is a lot of botrytis here, but it does not dominate; rather it supports and intensifies the fine yellow fruit flavours, bright lemony acidity and chalky mineral finish.
