Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Kabinett 2011


SKU 17853


Steep slope. Medium-grained Devonian slate as topsoil with medium-deep subsoil of decomposed slate mixed with some loam. ZELTINGER SCHLOSSBERG is mineral to the MAX! I think it's time to give this vineyard its due: it's a great Grand Cru site, fully deserving the status of a Wehlener Sonnenuhr or Erdener Prälat. The pity is most of it is worked by the small growers of Zeltingen, amoung whom standards aren't particularly high. Flavors are borealis of slate, buttressed by lime and grassy aspects. Mosel-apple is present but discreet. Medium bodied. If you love Mosels for their cussed Mosel-ness, grab these wines and hang on for dear life!

Wine AdvocateYeasty fermentative residues segue into site-typical smokiness in the nose of Selbach's 2011 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Kabinett, along with an adumbration of the lemon pip piquancy that accompanies its cidery apple on the juicy, buoyant palate. Impeccable sweetness and saline saliva-inducement help render the succulent finish here next sip-compelling. This promises at least ten or a dozen years of satisfaction.
