Although it remains off-the-radar to some, the name Selbach-Oster will be a familiar one to German wine aficionados as vintage in and vintage out, they are rated among some of the highest by the critics.
These wines have really got me into German Rieslings, I can’t stop admiring them in the wine rack and I’m waiting patiently for the next occasion to open one. Unbelievably good.

The 2019 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is pure, intense and flinty on the perfectly ripe nose that reveals raisins and crunchy slate aromas and, again, represents the great terroir of the ZSU. The finish is very dense, long and intense but by no means fat or clumsy. This has piquancy, salinity and enormous grip. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.

Super elegant and refined, this is exactly the right answer to someone who says, “sweet riesling, no way!” A thousand nuances of stone fruit, plus a delicate touch of floral honey and a whiff of fresh mint. Long, silky finish. Drink or hold.
