2008 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling 'Schmitt'

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

5/24/2015 - Seth Rosenberg Likes this wine: 92 points

Starts out with something odd on the nose - yeast, bread, musty, a little bit of wet cardboard? A tiny touch corked? Hard to tell, but if so, just a bit. Some creamy fruit - banana, golden apple and bit of peach. Sweet&sour. Some brown spice, honey. Very plush on the palate, feels thick and maybe a bit glyercal - fuzzy. Honey. As always with the 08's, there seems to more weight and less acid to me. The finish is good and more zingy than the rest, with the tropicals and peach, some lime, spices and sweet&sour. Nose - 4.5/6, Palate - 5/6, Finish - 5-5.5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1-1.5/2 = 15.5-16.5/20.

Too sweet for my taste, but in small doses enjoyable. Stone fruit and minerality, creamy texture but very fresh. Just not my style, gave other bottle away I had.

2005 Selbach-Oster Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

5/21/2015 - sawira wrote: 93 points

Darkish golden yellow - not browning at all, but nowhere close to pale. Subdued nose at first, hints of very ripe yellow apples. Uncoiling to full blown explosion of talc, brown spices, red and yellow fruits, lime, brown sugar, even some marzipan, over the next 20 minutes. On the palate this is big, fat, ripe, quite sweet on the attack, with a dryish, almost bitter, lingering finish. There's an explosion of flavor in the mouth after about 12 seconds that is phenomenal - citrus flavored Starburst, like unwrapping the candy and biting into it. Great palate presence, this is almost full bodied, especially for a Riesling, and hugely for a Kabinett. This is a very ripe Spatlese of old, and would be venturing into Auslese territory if not for the significantly dryish finish (at least in comparison to this degree of up front sweetness.) Lacking some acidity and associated delineation, but of course this is young and the ripe, sweet fruit dominates. Fat and juicy deliciousness.

Not much to add to the previous reviews. This is very expressive, still fairly youthful and primary, showing wonderful balance and structure. Ripe fruit, honey, white flowers on the nose. Fresh and vibrant on the palate, great finish. Delicious now, but will last for a long time and should also add complexity. 92-93+

Almost 11 years old and still an infant. Some good secondary notes, but in the meantime, lots of fruit in the nose, mouth, AND length. Well balanced.

2011 Selbach-Oster Pinot Blanc

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

5/15/2015 - Rieslingfan wrote: NR

This is a surprisingly crisp and refreshing wine, considering 2011 was generally lower in acidity in the Mosel. It says "dry" on the label, though I suspect that it's close to the high end of the dry scale. It has lots of pear and peach skin elements in the aromatics, and they carry through to the palate. The finish is decidedly zippy. It's a good quaffer for a good price.

2010 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

5/13/2015 - WhiskyGuru Likes this wine: 92 points

Light white floral nose, lily of the valley, and fresh squeezed key lime. Not yet ripened peach, key lime, and Haardt mountain wild flower honey on the palate with a hint of roasted hazelnuts on the finish. Bright and youthful Auslese with significant potential to age; I will be interested to taste this again in 5 to 10 years.

Has a lot of what I like in off-dry German Riesling. Darker gold color, heavy mouth feel, more mango/apricot flavors and light citrus in the background, coats your mouth without being flabby, some spice on the nose. Be ready to sit and savor this.

Rieslingfeier 2015 Main Event (The Wythe Hotel, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY): My 375ml. Once again, this doesn't disappoint. Nose if apricots, marmalade, rough brown spices.

Finish is long and spicy with apricots and marmalade. Nose - 5.5/6, Palate - 5.5/6, Finish - 5.5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 18/20.

Rieslingfeier 2015 Main Event (The Wythe Hotel, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY): This might have been my bottle, who knows? Stony and precise on the nose. Spicy, peach, apple.

Nose - 5.5/6, Palate - 5.5/6, Finish - 5.5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 18/20.

1/31/2015 - Seth Rosenberg Likes this wine: 94 points

Rieslingfeier 2015 Main Event (The Wythe Hotel, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY): A treat from Johannes. Nose of petrol, a little dried, peach, dried tropical fruits, spice, creamy with a wonderful vanilla/baked smell. Enters dried on the palate and golden, but the acid comes in right away - juicy citrus, golden apples, baked. Really excellent cut and balance and that creamy vanilla comes out again towards the end. Just more confirmation that Domprobst is some of my favorite dirt in the Mosel. Nose - 5/6, Palate - 5.5/6, Finish - 5-5.5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 17-17.5/20.

Nose initially was reticent but opened up over a few hours to reveal subtle notes of lemon oil and a touch of petrol. There is a tremendous density to the palate, but it is lifted by a good amount of acidity. Very clean fruit of white pear and peach, a touch of Apple, but just poking through. Great balance, this just needs more time.

Agree wholeheartedly with Salil. Great stuff and definitely more classical than current Selbach vintages.
