Winemaker's Notes:

The Schlossberg is located in the town of Zeltingen. This vineyard lies between the Zeltinger Sonnenuhr and Zeltinger Himmelreich. The name Schlossberg translates to Castle Mountain, because the partial ruins of the local castle still stand prominently in this vineyard. It’s a south facing slope so it gets maximum sunshine and heat. The site is 100% Devonian slate. It heats up fast, and provides extra warmth for the grapes all day long. The grade of the slope hits 70 degrees in some parts, which means everything must be hand picked. Because the wine is labeled as Spätlese, it legaly must reach a minimum of 76 degrees Oechsle. In this case, the wine was harvested at 88 degrees and could have been legally designated an Auslese, but Selbach preferred to have it as a Spätlese.
