Julia and Klaus-Peter Keller take their silvaner very seriously. Most of the vines are on GG sites, and the estate has an enviable average vine age. They believe silvaner needs to be cropped lower and have older vines than the norm in Germany. It’s given the royal treatment, hand-picked, basket-pressed and fermented on its lees. As a consequence it’s powerful and textured; rounder than riesling, and it shows a complex richness with a stony minerality. It has a wisp of white pepper, a doughy/wheat chaff nuance and crisp stone fruit with pear notes. It ages well despite the fact that most of it gets drunk young by German locals during the white asparagus season.
