Selbach Oster-Riesling-Zeltinger "Sonnenuhr" Spatlese feinherb "Uralte Reben" Mosel-2014

Selbach Oster
Zeltinger "Sonnenuhr" Spatlese feinherb "Uralte Reben" Mosel


Not just “Old Vine,” but “Ancient Vine” Riesling from the heart of the Mosel Valley. 100+ year old, ungrafted vines yielding paltry amount of Riesling grapes. Feinherb=Halbtrocken, or half dry. In other words, “drier than most.”  Smell and taste dried wildflowers, peach purée, ruby grapefruit, lemongrass & rocks. 

"From the very oldest plot of the cru next to the Rotlay, with more than 100-year-old ungrafted vines with extremely low yields--but highly aromatic berries that are as great as lentils--the 2014 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese feinherb Uralte Reben opens with a very deep, clear, concentrated and slightly flinty, highly complex bouquet with some herbal flavors. Round, piquant and highly elegant on the palate, with some nutty and almond flavors, this is a very noble and concentrated, perfectly balanced, lingeringly salty Riesling of great elegance and expression. This is world-class Mosel Riesling with an almost endless finish. It's rather smoothly textured, but in the finest way. A Must Buy of the 2014 vintage! Great aging potential. The old plot is named Kackert and was owned by the Freiherr von Schorlemer Estate for almost 100 years. It is one of the very best parcels in the Zeltinger Sonnenuhr and this wine shows why." Stephan Reinhardt for The Wine Advocate, March 2016
