Selbach-Oster Riesling Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett Halbtrocken 2017

Mosel, GermanyThe Zeltinger Himmelreich (Kingdom of Heaven) Kabinett Halbtrocken demonstrates some of the very best aspects of German riesling. Wild yeast fermented, this is a knockout floral affair flecked with spice and aromatic dried herbs. The attack is intense, offering juicy, citrus, peach lined with savoury tarragon notes. Off-dry at 17 g/l residual sugar, but you hardly notice it thanks to a stony, mineral, electric undercurrent. Ready to drink but will live forever. Think seafood, chicken, pork, or cellar forever.
