Selbach-Oster Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese**

Zeltinger Sonnenuhr is the top Grand Cru and the Selbachs are the primary owners of this site. This is the steepest of the three vineyards, and there are large outcroppings of rock with chunks of blue Devonian slate with a very shallow subsoil of decomposed slate. This is also the driest of the vineyards, and generally speaking, these wines are full-bodied, and a bit more flashy.

Review:
At once very concentrated, with plenty of dried stone fruit and floral honey, yet still graceful and refined. Intense citrusy freshness at the still tightly wound finale. Decades of aging potential. Drink or hold.
