Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett Halbtrocken, Selbach-Oster
Zeltingen’s Himmelreich is a site with variable exposures and steepness, but the best of it offers “1er Cru” quality in a green-apple and kiwi style, more fruit driven than mineral.
It’s richer and less minty than usual but I like the richness in this vintage, which can use a little gras; so anticipate a wine with
more apple and less spearmint; crunchy stuff. The parcel is called Heel and it’s to the right of Anrecht, from which one of the
great trio of en-bloc wines comes. This is a marked triumph in ’14. – Terry Theise
