Selbach-Oster

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.

  • I am planning to make a recipe that suggests wild ferment sauv blanc as a wine pairing. I loosely get the concept of wild fermentation but I don't really understand how that would translate into a different wine (and, consequently, a different pairing). I'd love to hear any feedback you guys have.I guess it would be great to do some research and... Read More

  • Hi! Time for a long overdue update. Unfortunately I will be going from memory and some very basic notes though. Dinner was somewhat impacted when I cut my finger with a cheese grater - I should have just thrown it away as soon as I noticed it was coming out of its plastic housing. It never pays to rush in the kitchen - especially when you are re... Read More

I'd like to pair it with 2-3 wines, mostly as a pairing experiment to see which works best. Any ideas?
