Food Pairings for Selbach Riesling Spatlese
Editorial Reviews for Selbach Riesling Spatlese
Quite tight on the nose, first with aromas of pure, fresh lemons slowly being joined by floral basenotes, a little minty/medicinal anise seed spice and faint apple peels. Fairly powerful, but within expectations for a Spatlese. This is a lovely wine, unremarkable perhaps but with fine balance, strong apple, and lemon rind flavors that show complicating hints of quince and honey all wrapped up in a smooth texture that extends along the moderately long, candied apple finish, with neither sugar nor acid ever getting the upper hand. It's not going to wow anyone, but at the same time it's not going to get too many people upset either. 88pts
We know how to make reductive fruit-bombs that get high scores and stand out in big tastings, but the problem is everyone writes about those wines but nobody drinks them. We want to make wines for food, that people can use in their everyday lives.
