About the Wine

Weingut Franz Keller has been a member of “VDP. Die Prädikatsweingüter”, the most esteemed German association for winemakers, since 2014.

Kaiserstuhl, the warmest and sunniest German wine region, is characterized by volcanic soils covered with fertile loess that provide excellent wine growing conditions. Volcanic soils types vary greatly from vineyard to vineyard. This soil diversity contributes vastly to the exciting taste variety of the wines.

Oberbergener Bassgeige, a name derived from the characteristic shape of the vineyards surrounding the village, is known well beyond Baden. The terroir consists of mainly loess on top of volcanic rock, contributing to the distinctive character of the wines.

Tasting Notes: Red wine. Wines that stand out due to their delicate fruit, liveliness, and elegant. The grapes for these wines are predominantly cultivated on light loess soils. Ruby red in color; fruit aromas of cherry and red currants are accompanied by notes of flintstone and gunpowder. 12.5% ABV

Reviews

Ripe but restrained blackberry and cherry are accented by whispers of smoke, earth and cut mineral in this sturdy, medium-bodied red. It's briskly concentrated on the palate and finishes with fine, lingering tannins. It drinks elegantly already but should hold through 2027. ~89WE
