2019 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese Feinherb Ur-Alte Reben Mosel
Back In Stock!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled in early September, the 2019 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese feinherb "Ur-alte Reben" is very fine and subtle on the deep, intense and aromatic but pure, fresh and flinty-elegant nose with a touch of oak. Silky, refined and fresh on the palate, this is a very complex and crystalline Riesling with enormous length and complexity. A gorgeous wine that needs years to show its talents. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. (SR)" (10/2020) K&L Notes: 96pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 32 20. The 2019er Zelt...

96 points James Suckling: "Theoretically, the Spatlese category is no longer cool, because these wines are medium-sweet and therefore not food-friendly (try tempura, Vienna Schnitzel or Thai red curry). But this is a masterpiece of floral finesse! Lovely, mandarin note at the long, delicate and just off-dry finish. Drink or hold." (09/2020) 95-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese opens with a bright and coolish, very delicate and filigreed bouquet of herbal/floral aromas intertwined with bri...

94 points John Gilman: "The beautiful 2011 Juffer-Sonnenuhr Spätlese from Oliver Haag was still on the sales list at the winery when I was there in May and was bargain-priced for its stellar quality! The bouquet is beautiful blossomed and à point in its blend of lime, white cherries, mossiness, white flowers, a fine base of slate, gentle smokiness and the first hint of the sweet corn element to come with further bottle age. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full and nicely filigreed, with a lovely core, superb focus and grip and a long, vibrant and ...

94 points James Suckling: "Lots of berry and herb aromas make this a very striking Kabinett, then a brilliant interplay of acidity, fruit and spice gives it a lot of excitement. Drink or hold. Screw cap." (08/2020) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This zingy kabinett is such an irresistible lightning bolt of Riesling. While subtle and mineral on the nose, the palate jolts with lime, yellow-peach and tangerine flavors struck by tangs of salt and slate. Light in body yet piercing in style, it finishes long on a murmur of spice and earth. It’s hard not to drin...

97 points Wine & Spirits: "Since 2003, Johannes Selbach has been experimenting with picking a parcel of vines all at once, combining grapes at different ripeness levels rather than selecting them out for different Prädikat bottlings. It’s an old way of making wine, and one that makes a lot of sense when you taste a wine like this 2019. From a sliver of the Zeltinger Himmelreich vineyard with deep, loamy slate soils, it adorns strident, cool mineral tones with a riot of succulent flavors, from crunchy golden apple to meaty yellow peach, apricot nectar and...
Price: $59.99

95 points James Suckling: "Hang on to your hat. With its enormous ripeness and brilliant acidity, this monumental wine defies the limits of the Spätlese category. None of the exotic fruit that’s so typical for 2019, rather you're in the kingdom of the peach here ! Decades of aging potential. Drink or hold." (08/2020) 94 points John Gilman: "The One Star Spätlese from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr from Johannes Selbach is another truly beautiful example of the vintage. It offers up a pure, complex and vibrant nose of apple, pear, vanilla bean, a lovely base of...

Drink now. Screw cap." (08/2020) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Riesling is pure, bright and crystal-clear on the precise, floral and finessed nose. Round and juicy on the palate, this is a very delicate and stimulating Riesling in the off-dry style. The wine has enormous grip, and you won't stop longing for it. Absolutely fabulous! 11% ...

2019 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett Mosel
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "Although this is still very youthful, there’s already lots of sliced pear and white peach on the nose with a hint of wet earth. Quite a generous Kabinett, but with the distinctive raciness of the category, this already gives so much, but has excellent aging potential. Very long finish with just a hint of apple rings sauteed in butter, suggesting the ripeness of the vintage. Drink or hold."

(08/2020) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A crush of crystalline minerality and delicate spice mingle into luminous white peach and pineapple here. Intensely ripe yet gorgeously pure in fruit, it’s a snappy, spine-tingling style of off-dry Riesling that’s irresistible young but likely to maintain peak performance through 2027 and hold longer still.

94 points James Suckling: "With its ripe-pear, peach and mirabelle aromas, this is an immediately appealing spatlese, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Plenty of acidity and subtlety lurking below the waters' calm surface. Long, rather dry finish." (08/2020) 93-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Maximin Grünhaus Riesling Abtsberg Spätlese is fresh and stony on the nose—almost greenish—and, in any case, terribly pure, fresh and precise, with flinty notes of crushed stones and also perfectly ripe tropical fruit aromas that come out ...

94-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Feinherb is intense in its shining citrus color and opens with a spectacular flinty and reductive bouquet of crushed stones and herbs, while the fruit remains discreet and is coated with a yeasty character. This is a relatively rich and charmingly round and textured Riesling with great slate finesse and stimulating piquancy and salinity on the long, intense finish. This is a high quality grand cru in the medium-dry to sweet style. It is noble and beautifully balanced and l...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From six-year-old vines, the 2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese ** is very intense yet feminine and charming on the nose, like a naked Rubens woman in oil on canvas. The wine reveals perfect botrytis or overripeness that doesn't take anything away from the precision and finesse. It is round, gorgeously lush and voluptuous on the palate yet with crystalline, highly refined acidity and structure. This is a spectacularly intense, warm and ripe Auslese that is opulent yet lean, racy and piquant, finishing with ...

92 points Vinous: "Honeysuckle, heliotrope and peony serve for sweet, musky perfume that mingles with predictable scents of apple. The midpalate is flatteringly creamy but not lacking for primary juiciness, and exhibits inner-mouth florality consistent with the nose. The finish is soothing but also refreshing, with billowing floral perfume, a saliva-liberating hint of salinity and an undertone of wet stone.

Pretty complex for such a refreshing Kabinett. Round and piquant on the palate, this is a finessed, remarkably fine and stimulating Kabinett with crystalline acidity and moderate sweetness in the finish. I'd keep this Kabinett for at least another 2 or 3 years. Tasted at the domain in September 2020. (SR)" (10/2020) 90 points Wine & Spi...

93 points John Gilman: "The 2019 Ürziger Würzgarten Kabinett AP #4 from the Christoffel estate is even a hair more refined on the nose than the very fine Treppchen Kabinett, wafting from the glass in a sophisticated blend of strawberries, white cherries, violets, lovely Würzgarten spice tones, a fine base of slate, violets and bee pollen. On the palate the wine is bright, medium-bodied and again, impressively filigreed, with lovely focus and grip, a well water purity that is quintessential Kabinett, bright acids and a long, complex and beautifully balanc...

Very long, succulent finish that shows uplifting vitality. From organically grown grapes." (08/2020) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Marienburg GG Falkenlay is pure, fresh and mineral on the (flint-) stony and only discreetly fruity nose that is more for Riesling nerds rather than beginners. Round and juicy on the palate, this is a lush, very intense and sustainable Falkenlay with re...

The attractive spritz helps make it even more mouthwatering." (05/2020) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Rausch Riesling Kabinett is intense yet refined and lofty on the nose. Round and sweet on the palate, with a touch of oak, this is a textured and mouth-filling Kabinett with good concentration and nice salinity. This is more lush and concentrated than th...

93 points John Gilman: "There are not a lot of estates that bottle their Spätlesen under screwcaps, but Robert Eymael has been doing this here since he purchased the winery and vineyards. I am not sure if he offers his Spätlesen under both natural cork and screwcap, or exclusively under screwcap, but this is not a practice I encounter at many German estates, no matter how vociferous is their support of the modern closure. At least out of the blocks, the closure is doing no harm to this beautiful Würzgarten Spätlese, which offers up a bright and complex b...

97 points John Gilman: "The AP #9 Kabinett from the Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard is quite a bit more reserved out of the blocks than the Badstube Kabinett, but this is the inherent beauty of the slow to unfold, but timeless Sonnenuhr. With some nurturing, the wine blossoms nicely to show its immense promise, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, white cherry, vanilla bean, slate, lilacs, fruit blossoms, a touch of wild yeasts and just a hint of lime zest in the upper register. On the palate the wine is vibrant, medium-bodied and beautifully structured,...

Drink or hold." (08/2020) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese is clear yet still yeasty on the concentrated, spicy and slatey nose. Sweet, piquant and classy on the palate, this is a tight and concentrated Auslese with bitter grapefruit on the finish. It is still shy after the recent bottling yet indicates remark...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese has a very clear bouquet, but it still shyly reveals its ripe apple fruit and raisin aromas. On the palate this is a rich, sweet and piquant, well balanced and refreshingly salty Spätlese with a great finesse and elegance. In former issues this wine was always designated as AP #7, but since there is no other bottling of this wine in 2013 I do not refer to the AP number.

(08/2020) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Auslese is clear and bright on the still-closed nose yet less complex compared to the Sonnenuhr (probably due to the recent bottling).

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "All of the raw material, incidentally, came from the Juffer. Haag’s 2011 Brauneberger Juffer Riesling trocken – weighing-in, like its 2010 predecessor, at 12.5% alcohol, and matured in a combination of tank and fuder – delivers juicy white peach and grapefruit, apple and lime, with the sort of stony cantus firmus that already characterized its generic and “village” predecessors, but incorporating invigorating citrus rind, pungent sage, and a bite of black pepper, its fruit, herb, and mineral elements positively s...

Zippy and spry, it pulsates with rich, ripe peach and tangerine flavors as well as a smoky, lingering finish. This decadent medium-sweet wine is drinking beautifully now but should hold through 2030.

The bouquet is more reserved at the present time than the Schlossberg, but with some prodding offers up scents of apple, pear, slate, white flowers, a nice touch of salinity and an esthery topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is fullish, crisp and vibrant, with a fine girdle of acidity, lovely cut and grip and a long, slightly broad-shouldered, but...

The 2019 Spätlese offers up a beautiful aromatic constellation of pear, orange, vanilla bean, fruit blossoms, slate and a topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is fullish, complex, vibrant and seamlessly balanced, with a lovely core, fine slate undertow, a lovely girdle of acidity and excellent focus and grip on the very long, very pure and dancing finish.
