Wine Selbach Oster, Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Kabinett, 2016
This top-quality Riesling is a typical modern Mosel style wine which reflects the minerality of the Devonian slate soils, as well as the elegance and finesse of the Riesling fruit in clear, crisp, low-alcohol, yet full-flavoured handcrafted wine. Delicious, moreish, fruity with a surprising dryness, this wine ticks all the boxes!
White - Lush and Balanced. Top Riesling from Mosel.
The grapes are picked early to keep the potential alcohol in check while providing great fruit and acidity for the backbone. Slate, sweet ripe fruit, citrus, and minerality on the nose along with a hint of yeastiness. Fruit and acidity notable on the palate along with salinity. Rich, long finish.
Perfect on its own as an aperitif or with spicy food, shellfish, stews, cured meats, cheese and fruits. A top-quality wine for every day and all seasons.
These vineyards of weathered Devonian slate are on a steep, contiguous slope facing south-southwest and represent some of the most prestigious sites in all of the Middle Mosel
Vinification is carried out in a combination of fuder and stainless steel, in a hands-off manner with no fining, and predominantly with wild yeasts. Minimal interference and natural approach.
This family's heritage in winemaking dates back to the 1660s and they have always been very tradition strong in creating wines with minimal intervention believing that the perfect wine comes from the perfect grape and vine.
