Loaded with lemons and green apples with a little slate thrown in. Finishes with a near cloying tartness. Could shine with the right food pairing. Not recommended on it's own.
I dont know how this wine stands up on its own, but it was oerfect for an Oktoberfest dinner; with pretzel crusted pork chops in an orange mustard sauce this wine was a real winner!
External Reviews for Selbach-Oster Riesling Spätlese Zeltinger Sonnenuhr
The vineyards of the middle Mosel owe their international acclaim to a combination of slate soil, southern exposure, and death-defying steepness. With steely minerality and a whiff of botrytis, this offering from Selbach-Oster delivers a mouthful of orchard fruit balanced by a healthy dose of acidity.
Exhibits a slate character driven by the vibrant structure and enhanced by peach and lime notes. It's all balanced and expressive, with a lingering aftertaste of spice and mineral. Drink now through 2030. 29 cases imported. BS Wine Spectator. A Riesling wine from Mosel Saar Ruwer in Germany. 2006 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Spatlese 750ml
The Selbach-Oster Spatlese is creamy-textured and light to medium-bodied. Feminine and graceful, it seduces the taster with its lush pear and apple-flavored character. Anticipated maturity now-2014.
