Selbach-Oster Rieslings are not wines that change according to the whims of fashion. Nor are they "made" according to recipe. Though they are without question totally delicious. The vineyards are farmed organically and this philosophy extends to the winery with natural yeasts and a hands-off approach. They are true characters, wines with structure, wines that display their heritage, rooted deep into the slate rock like the old vines - many of which are still on their own vinifera roots. Shaped by their unique terroir, Selbach wines come with their own original characteristics, which they strive to preserve. They will age beautifully for many years and will gain complexity with age. These vineyards and wines present a wide variety of aromas, depth of flavor and true complexity while also showing clarity and minerality.
There's fine depth to the apricot, peach, slate and celery seed aromas and flavors in this lithe yet intense white, with a lingering aftertaste of apricot and mineral.
A refreshing, harmonious dry Riesling with a food-friendly personality. Delicate herbal and white-fruit notes and a crisp finish. Drink now.
