Bright aromas of white peach and lemon oil. The palate is animated by a very crisp expression of apple and slate. Well-balanced and persistent. Read more

Selbach-Oster’s generic 2009 Zeltinger Riesling Kabinett — coming entirely from the Himmelreich; and the most successful of its kind that I can recall at this address — is scented and flavored with baked apple and pineapple, wreathed in subtle floral perfume and a bit of yeasty fermentative fog. Subtly creamy and with a delicacy (at 9% alcohol) that justifies its Pradikat, this finishes with juicy refreshment and the proverbial kiss of wet stone, with all the sweetness it needs to render its fruit ultra-generous, but not one gram more. This ought to remain simply lovely over the next 6–8 years.

A bright white, offering peach and ripe apple flavors, as well as hints of blood orange. Finishes with notes of lemon curd. Drink now through 2014.


Winemaker's Notes:

"In its author’s words “a slow fermenter and extreme ‘sponti’,” Selbach’s 2009 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett does indeed lead with a nose-wrinkling note of yeast and fermentative byproducts, behind which emerge site-typical apple blossom and heliotrope, apple and vanilla following on a creamy yet juicy and delicate palate suffused with saline savor suggesting shrimp shell reduction and finishing with salvia-inducing persistence supplemented by walnut piquancy and wet stone. This ought to remain lovely for at least 15 years. Like the corresponding generic Kabinett, this reflects Selbach’s desire not to over-load his Kabinetts with residual sugar, which means that in a vintage as ripe as 2009 we end up with 9% alcohol. That ripeness is also the reason there are so few Kabinetts this vintage chez Selbach...91" WA 12/10
