Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling ‘Anrecht’, Selbach-Oster
Anrecht is steep and on a perfect southern angle, it has the deepest subsoil of broken slate mixed with organic matter (humus) and loam. It is further away from river and village compared to Rotlay and Schmitt, hence a tad cooler but nonetheless excellent.
Soil type: weathered Devonian slate with some loam and alluvial river deposits
The ’14 is less arch and stinging than usual; it was done (again like ’13) in Fuder. Botrytis is an element here but subsumed into
an exegesis of every different lime for the last 6,000 years. The finish is a vapor of mint and verbena. Certainly important and
impressive, but I want to see how its elements finally play together. – Terry Theise
