"Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese "Schmitt" 2005 This Auslese summarizes the absolute precision and breathtaking quality of wine being produced at Selbach-Oster today. What we see here with the Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese "Schmitt" is the unfathomable level of complexity, sophistication, brilliance and elegance all wrapped up in one little bottle. An so it is with Selbach-Oster that we see the same level of complexity, sophistication, brilliance and elegance all wrapped up in one guiding light, Johannes Selbach. His commitment to his craft and dedication to the soil is simply exemplary, and we are all the beneficiaries of this man's gift to the world of wine making. Mineral sizzle to the max! While concentrated and viscous as one would expect from a wine that has the same level of ripeness as Beerenauslese, it seems defy this richness, appearing almost weightless on the palate with its ethereal grace and delicacy. With its razor edge level of sharply crisp acidity, this monumental elixir just oozes greatness. üüü+ Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese *** 2005 Very ripe fruit notes both in the nose and flavor of this gorgeous Auslese. There are definite signs of botrytis here as the smell of honey and caramel can be found in the wine's fragrant bouquet. Satisfyingly rich and succulent flavors of vanilla icing and butterscotch pleasingly coat the palate. The very lively finish rounds out the overall finesse of this deliciously flavorful wine. "
