Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About Selbach Oster:

Since 1661 our family has owned vineyards in the Mosel region. Our main treasure is simply what nature presents us with: excellent vineyard-sites, and old, ungrafted vines on steep, south-facing slopes planted on heat-retaining, mineral-rich, rocky slate soil. Our philosophy of winemaking is "hands-on" in the vineyards and "hands-off" in the cellar. Most of our wines are still fermented and matured in the traditional oak "Fuder"-barrels supplemented by a small number of stainless-steel vats. We do not use new oak for Rieslings to preserve the delicate structure of subtle fruit and crisp acidity as purely as possible
