Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese* 2015


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

ZELTINGER SCHLOSSBERG is mineral to the MAX! I think it's time to give this vineyard its due: it's a great Grand Cru site, fully deserving the status of a Wehlener Sonnenuhr or Erdener Prälat. The pity is most of it is worked by the small growers of Zeltingen, amoung whom standards aren't particularly high. Flavors are borealis of slate, buttressed by lime and grassy aspects. Mosel-apple is present but discreet. Medium bodied. If you love Mosels for their cussed Mosel-ness, grab these wines and hang on for dear life!

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese* is super clear and flinty on the nose, with smoky/dusty flavors of crushed stones and very clear pineapple aromas. The wine shows a great finesse and elegance on the palate, is lush and perfectly ripe, as well as piquant, firmly structured, very salty and long in the tension-filled finish. This is an aristocratic Auslese of great precision, finesse and elegance; it is probably the finest Auslese of the vintage at Selbach-Oster. The finish is so pure and endlessly salty!
