94 Pts Wine & Spirits

"Forget the QbA designation: This is massive, impressive wine. It comes from a special plot, an extremely steep parcel of blue Devonian slate and ruddy, ferrous rock within Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, which Johannes Selbach picks en bloc, meaning all at once, collecting overripe, underripe and perfectly ripe grapes and vinifying them together. In 2012, that jumble gave a richly upholstered riesling, as golden in flavor as its color predicts. While the pineapple and mango tones place it at the sweeter end of the dry wine spectrum, the minerality that pervades it keeps it centered and firm. If you open it now, decant it and serve with something opulent and rich; better, however, to age it another decade to see all that it will become." (12/14)

94 Pts Stephan Reinhardt - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Picked on November 8, the 8% alcohol plus 97.5 residual sugar 2012 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Rotlay offers a very stony scented Sonnenuhr, as well as Riesling bouquet in a very delicate and noble way. On the palate this full-bodied "Auslese" is elegant, delicate and juicy, but also full of salty minerals and tension. This is a great and noble sweet Rotlay. Its aging potential should be terrific.

93 Pts Joel Payne - Vinous Media

"Golden yellow. Lovely floral, peach and clove aromas are complicated by a dash of nut oil. Unctuous, creamy apricot flavor is lifted by a bracing saline character. Finishes brilliantly--and almost off-dry--with slate, lemon oil and a hint of nutmeg. Distinctive and long, this is one of the great ausleses of the vintage." (01/14)

90 Pts Wine Spectator

"Sweet and direct, with rich white cherry and red peach flavors that offer notes of ruby grapefruit. Offers ample honey and apple compote hints, extending with plenty of spice nuances on the fat finish. Drink now through 2022. 750 cases made. -KM" (2014)


"Selbach-Oster Rieslings are not "zeitgeisty" wines that change according to the whims of fashion. Nor are they “made” according to recipe. Though they are deeply delicious, they do not seek to "seduce" with short-term exotic aromas from specially cultured yeasts, aromatic enzymes or ice-cold fermentations. They are true characters, wines with structure, wines that display their heritage, rooted deep into the slate rock like our old vines -- many of which are still on their own vinifera roots.

Shaped by their unique terroir, our wines come with their own original characteristics, which we strive to preserve, and not to alter. They will age beautifully for many years and will gain complexity with age. They present a wide variety of aromas, depth of flavor and true complexity while also showing clarity and minerality.

Peach, apricot, apple, as well as citrus fruit and herbs are typical features of the aroma of our young and dry wines. Our delicately and subtley sweet wines show nuances of quince and tropical fruit, and the ripest of them will display honeyed and raisined flavors, often backed by a touch of salty minerality, and always balanced by crunchy acidity.

These wines are long lived and develop additional complexity through secondary and tertiary aromas that enrich the taste spectrum.

The grapes from our best single parcels (Rotlay, Schmitt, Anrecht) are block-picked, in one single picking very late in the season, at perfect maturity, and these develop into true terroir wines at their finest, with a minimum of human intervention and a maximum of flavor." - Winery
