Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese Feinherb Ur-Alte Reben 2019
Bottled in early September, the 2019 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese feinherb "Ur-alte Reben" is very fine and subtle on the deep, intense and aromatic but pure, fresh and flinty-elegant nose with a touch of oak. Silky, refined and fresh on the palate, this is a very complex and crystalline Riesling with enormous length and complexity. A gorgeous wine that needs years to show its talents. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.
This stunning off-dry version combines juicy ripeness with elegance, showing expressive crunchy pear, passion fruit and lime flavors midpalate. Notes of sweetened dandelion tea and savory mineral mingle on the back end as the acidity drives this to a harmonious conclusion. Superlong on the complex, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2037.
