2018 Selbach-Oster Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese Mosel

SKU #1461482 92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Domprobst Spätlese from Weingut Selbach-Oster is also a fine bottle in the making, but this wine is a tad muscular in style this year, coming in at 9.5 percent octane. 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 complex finish. Good juice. (Drink between 2022-2060) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Selbach's 2018 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese is still reductive yet very clear and flinty on the coolish, pure and aromatically fruity nose with its aromas of ripe and lush yellow-fleshed stone fruit. Lush and crystalline on the palate, this is a charmingly round and seductive Spätlese with crystalline structure, mouthwatering acidity and lingering salinity. This has 9% alcohol and a lot of tickling grip. Tasted from AP 11 19 in May 2019. (SR) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Nougat-like nuttiness and caramelization on the nose are complemented by vanilla-laced quince and pear jellies. The palate is correspondingly confitured and confectionary, subtly creamy in feel, and alluringly loaded with inner-mouth honeysuckle perfume, but also coolingly tinged with mint and balsam. Liquid floral and confectionary notes are prominent on a soothing, lusciously lingering finish, but for all of its richness and sheer sweetness, it preserves a surprising glimpse of wet stone and a welcome measure of primary juiciness. (DS) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

K&L Notes

92 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 11 19. The 2018er Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese was harvested at 94° Oechsle and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (69 g/l). It offers a nicely perfumed nose of spices, pink grapefruit zest, pear, rose petal, almond cream and smoke. The wine develops great juicy presence underpinned by an explosion of fine exotic fruits, tangerine and sappy peach on the beautifully pure palate. The finish is intense, playful and long, but also still a tad sweet at this stage. While enjoyable now, this Spätlese will really benefit from some cellaring in order to absorb its sweetness. 2026-2038." (06/2019)
