Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett Halbtrocken 2014
Wine AdvocateFrom 30-year-old vines in the filet of the cru, and bottled with 16 grams of residual sugar, the 2014 Zeltinger Himmereich Riesling Kabinett halbtrocken is a "charmingly dry" wine, says Selbach. The wine opens very clear, cool, delicately pure and flinty on the nose, with Cox's orange apple aromas. This is a beautifully juicy and delicate Kabinett with a very fine and vivacious acidity, as well as a filigreed Jugendstil structure; it has perfect grip and apple and salty stony flavors in the stimulating finish. Excellent!
Wine SpectatorA balanced mix of McIntosh apple and Asian pear flavors are matched to zesty acidity. Dried savory herbal notes on the crunchy finish. Drink now. 150 cases imported.
