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. "
Light & Crisp
Appearance: Clear wine, light straw yellow in color with little viscosity almost to sheeting on the glass. Nose: Green apple, peach, wet slate/minerality, and a waxiness almost like a box of crayons. Palate: Off dry with light body, apples, peaches, and minerality come through here as well. The acidity is there and refreshing, almost to the point that the wines seems like it has some bubbles to it. Very well balanced. Notes: This was a delicious bottle of wine. The initial attack of sweet green apples and peaches gave way to the minerality and acidity that smoothed out and covered you entire mouth on the mid-palate before transitioning to a decent finish. If you are not a white wine fan or have never had a German Riesling you won’t be disappointed by this bottle of wine. If you are a fan of the Mosel or Terry Theise imported wines already you most likely don’t need my recommendation to know that this is a bottle to try.
