Subtle bouquet of peach stone, cinnamon and lemon zest. Apricot fruit remains light and elegant on the palate, with refreshing acidity providing definition and lift. Mineral salts accent the pleasingly refreshing finish.

The generic Selbach-Oster 2009 Riesling Spatlese - from Zeltinger Himmelreich plus a bit of Kinheimer Hubertuslay - offers simple but luscious apple and pear fruit, with a saline streak that makes for an invigorating and lip-smacking finish. Give such impeccable balance - at 9% alcohol and with only a modest, adeptly-integrated residual sweetness - I would expect it to remain delightful for 12-15 years, and it might well pick up some complexity in the process as well.

Racy flavors of quince, peach and spiced pear fill this vibrant white. The long finish of strudel shows hints of butter, and is lush, creamy and elegant. Drink now through 2021.

Not much aroma here, but the flavors express lemon, orange and vanilla matched to a creamy structure. Itrsquo;s well-balanced and long, with a tangy finish. Best from 2007 through 2020.

On the dry side, medium body with aromas of peach, pineapple, spice and minerals. Elegant and lightweight, yet very seductive and balanced with intense flavors that build through a long finish.

This is on the drier side, its lively acidity framing flavors of citrus and grapefruit pith. It is unusually subtle and elegant, its fruit both juicy and reserved.

The generic Selbach-Oster 2009 Riesling Spatlese andmdash; from Zeltinger Himmelreich plus a bit of Kinheimer Hubertuslay andmdash; offers simple but luscious apple and pear fruit, with a saline streak that makes for an invigorating and lip-smacking finish. Give such impeccable balance andmdash; at 9% alcohol and with only a modest, adeptly-integrated residual sweetness andmdash; I would expect it to remain delightful for 12andndash;15 years, and it might well pick up some complexity in the process as well.

Winemaker's Notes:

First offering, of a slow-fermenter that’s still not yet bottled; but it’s fun to see this ripe yet elegant comme il faut classic in contrast to the crack-high ‘10s; this is streamlined with the finest possible fruit; subtle botrytis, polish and grace; will go all cox-orange and beeswaxy with age.
