Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Spatlese, Selbach-Oster

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!

Tasting Notes

Lime-blossom and pepperminty; botrytis discernible but discreet; the greater impact is slaty and salty. It’s a little “wild” just now, but bottling will civilize it. — Terry Theise
