95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese * (AP 22 17) offers a deep, pure, cool and smoky bouquet of ripe and concentrated Riesling fruits along with crunchy slate plates. Silky, round and lush on the palate, with very fine tannins and lingering salinity, this is a gorgeously fine and salty Riesling with structure, finesse and tensioned length. Extremely stimulating and fine, with weathering slate on the palate. Pure and salty, just gorgeous."
94-95 points James Suckling
"Stunning golden fruits and floral honey aromas pour from the glass. Very concentrated and bright with so much drive at the finish. Better from 2019 and has half a century ahead of it."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Importer: 55% of their 24 hectares of vines are on their original rootstocks, in Zeltinger Himmelreich, Schlossberg, Sonnenuhr, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich and Domprobst. These vineyards of weathered Devonian slate are on a steep, contiguous slope facing south-south west and represent some of the most prestigious sites in all of the Middle Mosel, in fact 85% of the Selbach’s vines are on steep slopes. The Selbach family’s heritage in the wine business dates to 1660.
