2011 Selbach-Oster Riesling Qualitätswein feinherb

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

1/30/2016 - matthewjhale Likes this wine: 86 points

Rubber bouncy ball, orange cream and pixie stix on the nose. The rubber goes away and the orange changes to more lemon and lime over time. Tart and sweet with some minerality and lemon and lime on the palate. I really enjoyed this wine at first but got tired of the sweetness. Still a nice wine with moderate complexity.

2012 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese feinherb Ur Alte Reben

Pineapple, tropical fruit and orange notes on the nose. Just on the light side of medium bodied and very much a wine of two expereineces, as previous reviewers have noted. Starts off like a big spatlese with lots of tropical fruit notes, especially pineapple and orange with varied additional tropical notes behind. Then, it closes down considerably. With most off-dry rieslings I have had, it's not like a switch flipping in the mid-body of the wine from spatlese to off-dry; it's a consistent experience throughout. The acidity in this wine was also not as prononced as I would've expected from a wine this young. There were plenty of mineral and spices notes on the finish. Overall, I felt the wine was more closed down than anything else, especially on the back half of the mid body where it felt like the fruit was bound up especially tightly. I think there's a lot of potential here and I'll try my next bottle in a year or so.

Shows a mélange of ripe orchard and citrus fruit on a cool stone base. For all of its richness, this is light and graceful on the palate and possesses great depth, concentration and power. The sweetness doesn’t overpower the acids or cause this to become cloying; it balances out the tension wonderfully.

Excellent

Took a solid 20 minutes to get over the rotten egg smell of sulfur, but once past that, a very different, very interesting riesling emerged. Typical ripe spatlese fruit, but what drives this wine is crunchy, salty minerality, and rich, round mouthfeel. Johannes said this bottling spent almost a year on the lees, which shows in its texture and secondary flavors.

Blind tasted. Clear signs of residual sugar, I called this Auslese, so thought it was even sweeter.

this was wonderful. Crystalline and pure. White orchard fruit, lychee, mint and stone. Multilayered with razor sharp acidity. Lots going on but very light on its feet. Reminded me a bit of zilikin. Wow.

After re-reading my previous tasting notes, I'm surprised to see that I managed to stay away this long! Other than a deeper gold color, this bottled performed exactly as the first one did four years ago - the evolution here is going to be slow. Again, really nice wine.

Drank over 3 days. Taste surprisingly stable over that period. I echo comments made by other reviewers here. Clearly on the sweeter side, but this is a beautiful wine. As noted by another reviewer... "Painfully young, but with great future. Excellent. 93-94+"

The nose just jumps out of the glass, petrol, lemon, lime candy, mineral and white flowers. Delicious rich flavors and a balanced finish. It lingers but there is great acidity as well.

Light gold. The taster below who noted honeydew on the nose nailed it; there's definitely an impression of sweet fruit, but on the green spectrum. There's a touch of honey in the aromas as well, but generally this seems not so aromatically expressive at the moment. The palate, however, is another story entirely. There this wine has a remarkable richness and intensity that nevertheless manages to come across as nearly weightless. The fruit and acidity here are integrated seamlessly, and the wine is a picture of elegant balance. The finish is impressively long, with focused yellow and green apple coating the center palate. Wonderful wine, still very young as others have noted. But a pure joy.

The best bottle yet. Beginning to relax and showing nice purity. Not as square as before. It still lacks focus and drive but it was a pleasure to drink. Enjoyed with okonomiyaki. Drink by 2018.

Tonight we went high/low: pretty sure we were the only ones at Uncle Robert's crazy Kalapana ho‘olaulea drinking 17-year-old Riesling out of plastic cups. Delicious with coconut shrimp. Because, as my wife reminded me, sometimes the best way to wear that Chanel dress is with high-tops from Target.

Wine is in great shape, all these years on -- not much bite to the acid, but enough to keep the thing laced together, spinally. Honey, wax, barest memories of lemon.

2010 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling 'Schmitt'

1/9/2016 - rlove wrote: 92 points

Light gold. The nose shows a rich bouquet of green apple, candied apricot, ginger, and botrytis spice. Honey and apple coat the palate through to a rich, honeyed finish. There's considerable sweetness here, but it and the ripe opulence are balanced by tartness and acidity. Selbach's blend of grapes of varying ripeness pays off here. This is a fine Riesling indeed. Best 2018-2028.

Would say this bottle has matured since my last tasting, 6 years ago... Lots of dried honey dried pineapple and nector driving this flavor profile. Served with fresh home made apple pie a la mode, and some loved it, some didn't like it at all. Very polarized bottle for a wine party night.

1/5/2016 - Zoomin Z Likes this wine: 94 points

Dense amber color. Mandarin oranges and brown sugar baked apple on the nose. A rich, very dense body follows with sweet tropical fruits. A nice spine of acidity carries the sugar to a long finish, with a hint of slate. This wine will overpower most meals even if served cold. If enjoyed after dinner, nearer to room remperature would be my preference, to let it slowly glide over each and every tastebud. No loss of enjoyment 24 hours later, the bottle having been left on the countertop.

Very nice. I think aagrawal described my impression quite well. I'd only add that some of the hints of spice described in other notes also appear. First bottle opened after a tasting last winter--a tad lighter than I recall, but finely made.

12/23/2015 - peterchoy wrote: 86 points

Appearance: Bright and clear, it has light lemon-green color, with wide watery rims and legs.
Nose: Clean, with medium (-) intensity of citrus fruit of lemon, green fruit of muscat, floral notes of acacia, mineral notes of stony, hints of maturity notes of petrol. The wine is developing.
Palate: Off-dry, with high acidity, the wine has low alcohol and light body, demonstrating medium (-) intensity flavors of citrus fruit of lemon, green fruit of muscat, floral notes of acacia, mineral notes of stony. The wine has a medium finish.
Conclusion: Good quality German Riesling with a fairly light intensity of typical varietal characters on the nose, demonstrating reasonable complexity, the wine is fresh and crisp, with a slightly off-dry palate, fairly light on concentration, with a decent length. It is a wine suitable to drink now and not intend for further ageing.

Very pale gold color. A flowery nose of tropical fruits that put a smile on my face. I kept delaying tasting since I couldn't quit smelling it. Peach and apple on the palate, balanced with a perfect level of sweetness and acids. A superb spatlese that should be drinking well for another decade or more.
