2016 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett Mosel

SKU #1353880 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Super-cool and super-delicate wine with great depth and wonderful balance. A blast of freshness that makes most white wines seem like yesterday's news. Should be exciting at least until 2030. Inner quote mark (6/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett (AP 18 17) is pure and flinty on the nose, offering ripe and darker toned stone fruit aromas intertwined with crunchy slate and flinty aromas. On the palate, this is a super lush and stimulating Kabinett with fine tannins, grip and lingering salinity. This is a gorgeous Kabinett, and it's extremely stimulating. (SR) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The nose is a bit shrouded by yeasty fermentative notes but opens to reveal scents of ripe pear garlanded in honeysuckle and heliotrope. This displays a bit less clarity and refreshment than the corresponding Schlossberg but shows compensatory creamy textural allure and soothing, subtly sweet persistence; pear seed and lime zest offer stimulating counterpoint. (DS) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A well-knit, firmly structured kabinett, with beautiful harmony between the stone fruit, dandelion and tarragon notes, all linked by intense acidity. Shows complexity and length. Drink now through 2025. (AZ) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

The Selbach Oster estate has kept wine making in the family for four hundred years. Working out of the middle Mosel, the estate has several ungrafted vineyards, with the vine age on some up to 100 years old. The rocky, Devonian slate in many of the vineyards forces the vines to dig deeply into the soil to find water and nutrients. The wines, even at an entry level, are complex and highly aromatic. The Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Kabinett highlights one of the Mosel's most acclaimed vineyard sites for a sub $20 price point. On the nose is the classic flinty minerality with notes of dried orange and marmalade. The 2016 vintage produced ripe, fruity wines and this has a tempered acidity letting the beautiful fruit really shine through. An exceptional bottle from one of our favorite producers!
