2016 Super Stars from Selbach-Oster
2016 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese...$37.99
The 2016 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese * (AP 22 17) offers a deep, pure, cool and smoky bouquet of ripe and concentrated Riesling fruits along with crunchy slate plates. Silky, round and lush on the palate, with very fine tannins and lingering salinity, this is a gorgeously fine and salty Riesling with structure, finesse and tensioned length. Extremely stimulating and fine, with weathering slate on the palate. Pure and salty, just gorgeous.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Advocate
2016 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling “Schmitt”...$55.99
The 2016 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese "Schmitt" (AP 24 17) is a very clear, fresh and precise on the nose, with very fine mineral aromas of crunchy slate. This reminds me a bit of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr in its finesse, perfectly ripe fruit and the finest possible expression of minerals in wine. This is the finest Schmitt I have ever had and surely one of the greatest 2016s from the Mosel. Its finesse and elegance are mind-blowing.
