Selbach Riesling QbA 'Red Label'

The small negoçiant firm of J&H Selbach are minor players in this market. Because they’re small, they’re more sensitive to blips in the cost of grapes or juice, but they’re also able (and willing) to pay a hands-on attention that’s otherwise unheard of. For example, nearly 100% of their grape supply is under contract with growers they know and trust, and they’re making the wines with more lees contact J&H SELBACH REGIONALS and with spontaneous fermentation. And so I wanted to taste the wines this year with the same attention I give to the wines I take “seriously,” just to be sure they wouldn’t tarnish my own hippitude.
