Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett 2011
Continuation of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr downstream, towards where the dam across the Mosel widens the water surface. The appellation ends at the church at the southern end of Zeltingen. Very steep slope with large outcroppings of rock. Large chunks of blue Devonian slate, very shallow subsoil of decomposed slate on top of slate bedrock. Driest soil of the five sites. Very close to the water surface of the Mosel.
Wine SpectatorThis has a smoky and minerally essence to the chamomile and glazed citrus flavors that linger on the ripe, juicy finish, which features hints of sea salt. Best after 2026. 56 cases imported.
