Selbach-Oster Riesling Zeltinger Himmelreich Anrecht 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

93+ points Stephen Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): Bright and aromatic on the nose, the pale yellow 2013 Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Anrecht reveals clear grapefruit, lemon and lime aromas on the nose. Picked on November 8, this 8% virtual Auslese is rich (82 grams of residual sugar are countered by 9 grams of residual sugar), noble sweet and creamy textured and finishes piquant and limey. Despite the density and concentration this is a very stimulating cru. Drink: 2020-2040. (Feb 2015)

At Weingut Selbach-Oster we can trace wine-growing in the family back to the year 1660. We grow Riesling on 20 hectares (50 acres, as per harvest 2007) of steep, south facing mountain slopes that face the Mosel River . The Selbach-Oster vineyards are located on some of the best vineyard land in the heart of the Mosel wine country called “ Mittelmosel”: Zeltingen (with Sonnenuhr, Schlossberg and Himmelreich), Wehlen (with Sonnenuhr), Graacher (with Domprobst and Himmelreich) and Bernkastel (with Badstube). With 55% proportion we still use the traditional “Fuder “ barrel made from German oak (This is old oak since we do not want woody flavours to mask the purity of fruit and soil flavour. A “Fuder” holds 1000 litres). The balance in our cellars is stainless steel and a little bit of fi-berglass tanks with a maximum size of 3000 litres per unit, ensuring low temperatures dur-ing fermentation and with it the preservation of freshness and delicacy of aroma. More than 50 % of Selbach-Oster vineyards are still planted with very old, ungrafted vines, yielding very concentrated fruit from small berries. Weingut Selbach-Oster is ranked by the German press as one of the best three dozen produc-ers in all of Germany and amongst the top ten in the Mosel. In the international press, Sel-bach-Oster is rated correspondingly high (Hugh Johnson, Robert Parker, Wine Spectator) and regularly ranks amongst the top two dozen German estates. Read less
