Winemaker's Notes:

"A smokehouse-like nose and saliva-inducing cured meat notes on the palate of Selbach-Oster’s 2010 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Spatlese join fresh apple and honeydew melon in a luscious and persistently satisfying display of Middle Mosel – if not to my antennae particularly site-specific – virtue. Both overt reductivity and a seemingly faintly lactic hint struck me as vaguely awkward when I first tasted this wine; but revisiting it recently stateside, the impression was harmoniously creamy. It’s amazing how little one notices the high acidity here ... though of course, concomitantly, neither is the sweetness in itself prominent, even if slickness of texture hints that it’s high. Rich nut oils more prominent on the occasion of my second acquaintance with this wine only reinforced the sense of umami-richness of a Riesling sure to leave your mouth watering anytime over the next 15-20 years, if not longer...92" WA #199 02/12
