A classic Riesling Kabinett showing the colors of
a great vineyard. Medium-bodied, with notes of
minerals, peaches and a touch of citrus. Very
juicy, it's fruitiness harmoniously woven into
layers of minerality and crisp acidity, finishing
long and lively.
A great wine to accompany savory food and also
to enjoy by itself. Low in alcohol (9%)
but full of flavor, it is juicy and crisp at the same
time and goes great with delicately seasoned flavorful food of all sorts.
"The Selbach 2008 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett smells alluringly of Normandy cider, nut oils, green tea, and hedge flowers. Alkaline, wet stone, and saline mineral elements are all also adumbrated in the nose, then offer counterpoint to the richly ripe apple and white peach, flowers and herbs on a palate of creamy richness yet invigorating refreshment and levity. Here is the sort of improbably balanced Mosel Kabinett that is as delightfully fascinating to sip on its own as it is versatile at table, and that will prove as infectious fifteen or more years from now as it is today. What’s more, this remarkable value illustrates the opportunity that so many German wines – and virtually no others on earth – offer of exploring the complex virtues of a great vineyard site at a price most wine lovers can afford to pay most days of the week."
The Wine Advocate
"Accents of smoke and stone distinguish this apple- and floral-flavored Riesling, which lingers with mineral on the chalklike texture. Classy. Drink now through 2020. "
