Selbach-Oster, Zeltinger Schlossberg, Spatlese, 2008

Riesling
Selbach-Oster, Zeltinger Schlossberg, Spatlese, 2008
Mosel Valley, Germany

Since 1660 the Selbach family has been producing fine Rieslings in the Mosel Valley. This is arguably the greatest of all the German wine regions, which is known for the incredibly steep slopes and slate soils. Johannes Selbach is now at the helm as Winemaker, and showing an impressive ability to create wines of elegance, finesse, delicacy and style.

This wine comes from the Schlossberg vineyard which is close to the village of Zelting. It is made entirely from the Riesling grape, which is picked when the level of sugar in the berry qualifies it to be classified as a “Spatlese”.

This indicates the wine should be medium sweet. The nose shows a minerally character of wet stones, a touch of peach and apricot, combined with sweet apple aromas. The palate is light to medium in body, with honeyed flavors, and a zesty acidity that dance across your palate.

Food and wine pairing: The medium sweet character of the wine will suit spicy Indian and Asian dishes, and fresh fruit plates.
