97+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "There is a crystalline quality to the 2012 Keller Abtserde that makes the wine almost gem-like in its precision and sparkling complexity this year. The magical bouquet soars from the glass in a blaze of orange zest, pink grapefruit, petrol, crystalline, chalky minerality, citrus peel, esthery notes of bee pollen and lemongrass in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and brilliantly detailed, with a fine core, crisp, seamless acids, stunning focus and balance and a beautifully complex and flawless finish of glorious length and grip. This is clearly one of the finest examples of dry Riesling I have ever had the pleasure to taste, and I have drunk more than my fair share of Clos Ste. Hune over the years! 2020-2060. (Mar/Apr 2013)"

95 points Fine Wine Review: "Klaus-Peter Keller has established himself as the Rheinhessen’s most celebrated producer, and as these wines show, there is a good basis to make the argument. Some of the finest dry wines of the vintage are from this cellar that is below an unpretentious house and literally down by the railroad tracks. Klaus-Peter (Klaus is his father) said that the quality jumped after the late October frost... Last, the Abtserde GG is the most refined, maybe the most open in the nose of these wines. It shows more body than the others, but it is still light on the palate with great density but finesse. 12.5% stated alcohol. (Nov 2014)"
