My Notes:

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
