KELLER 2015

Best Vintage On Record! First Hipping Tba since 1900!!!

The Keller 2015’s are very special. A vintage like this doesn’t come along very often. Klaus-Peter Keller’s father, Klaus, believes it to be better than the legendary 1971 and the also best he has ever seen. Hipping 2015 Trockenbeerenauslese (Tba) was achievable for the first time in 115 years!

The grapes for the dry wines were harvested clean and perfectly ripe whilst the grapes for sweet wines picked late, with botrytis and without. The sweet wines without botrytis (Kabinett, Spatlese and Auslese) were made from grapes dried perfectly by the sun and wind. “The advantage of healthy dried grapes is increasing acidity, almost proportional to the volume loss, giving the grape juice crystal clear aromas and a fantastic high acidity. I cannot remember ever having late harvest musts weights with this brilliance in the cellar – they were picked with an acidity of 11-13 mg/ml!”K.P Keller

But it is also almost unprecedented that so many bunches were so perfectly botrytised that instead of picking berry-by-berry with scissors as is normal, many bunches were simply picked whole! “With the class of 2015 in the cellar we have been richly rewarded. The clarity and precision of the fruit combined with radiant acidity is simply overwhelming! Riesling is perfect and for example we made our first Hipping Tba. The last time Hipping gave grapes for Tba was 1900! The Rieslaner wines are erotic-exotic elixirs tasting extraordinary good already. The Trockenbeerenauslese from very old vines in Silberberg is a powerful, racy package with charming fruitiness and complexity. Yes, 2015 is really a sweet wine Valhalla with an incredible amount of sweet wines; more than 25 different wines! Batches of Tba range from 27 – 500Lt”K.P Keller
