Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese, Selbach-Oster

ZELTINGER SONNENUHR: is the Premier Grand Cru. Slate, lime, apple, butter-vanilla, rich, almost chewy earthiness, great depth. Some parcels are prized by locals as the best sites in the entire Bernkastel-Zeltingen ramp-DOKTOR notwithstanding! These wines are fullbodied. Selbachs are now the primo owners in this great site, and have inaugurated an era of elective harvesting and a quality potential such as we have never before seen.

Tasting Notes

Again masterly. Apple compote strained through slate-dust. Rich but disciplined, gorgeous and brainy; the botrytis iron is a grind of pepper, not over the fruit but bound to the minerality, which is like a ball of titanium, napped with key-lime. — Terry Theise
