Critical Acclaim

VN91 Vinous Jun 2017

"This wine’s fresh apple and honeydew melon fruit, coolingly tinged with green herbal extracts as well as site-typical vanilla, could scarcely be farther removed from the personality of its counterpart from Bernkastel. A hint of fresh lime conveys animating brightness not at all discordant with the polished, subtly creamy feel. Delightfully buoyant, the finish is surprisingly understated in its fruity persistence and underlain by wet stone. Like the aforementioned Badstube, though — and, indeed, in common with the entire range of Selbach Auslesen from this vintage — it is likely to gain significantly with bottle age." (91 pts.)

RP95 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 28th Apr 2017

"The 2015 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese is very clear, fine and fresh on the nose, which indicates a pretty pure and stony/mineral character. The attack on the palate is dense, enormously vital and racy; the wine is straight, firm and fresh, full of salts, and provided with great clarity and mineral tension. A fascinating and stimulating Auslese with a gorgeous grip and kick." (95 pts.)

Mosel

Mosel is home to some of Germany's finest white wines, a majority of which are Rieslings. The region surrounds the Mosel, Saar, and Ruwer rivers, and the soils in the region (full of Devonian Slate) make it perfect for growing Riesling grapes. The resulting wines are known for their aromatic floral bouquets and pronounced minerality.

Germany

The German wine-making tradition is long and illustrious, dating back to as early as AD 800. And for a country just slightly smaller than Montana, Germany produces and consumes a great deal of wine (it's the seventh-largest producer and sixth-highest consumer).

Germany is situated at the most northerly latitude at which grapes can ripen; the winters are cold and the growing season short, all of which, incidentally, are nearly identical to the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Most of its wine regions are situated in central and southwestern Germany. The most significant are the Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Rheinpfalz, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Franken and Baden.

The Riesling grape is king in Germany, even though it represents only 20% of total plantings: Müller-Thurgau (a Riesling-silvaner cross) has the most, followed by the red grapes Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Dornfelder. In good years and in the care of master winemakers, Riesling makes one of the greatest white wines in the world, with a perfect balance of sugar and acid, exquisite fruit and fragrance and with considerable potential for aging.
