J & H Selbach Weinkellerei Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett


Racy and very fine, almost lace in a glass. J & H Selbach Zeltinger Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett boasts a delightful degree of refreshment from salty mineral notes, fresh citrus and green apple. An impressive cling of wet stone is such that if you don’t take this wine to somehow be a reflection of slate, it’s unlikely you’ll ever experience a wine that way. This Selbach Riesling impeccably balances mouthwatering zestiness with a touch of residual sugar and, despite what its delicacy might suggest, it will easily keep for 8-10 years.

Zeltinger Himmelreich is the largest single vineyard in the town of Zeltingen. The medium-deep weathered clay slate soil provides excellent conditions for fruity and spicy wines with a distinctive bouquet. The elevation of this vineyard reaches up to 220 metres above sea level and the name "Himmelreich" (kingdom of heaven) is very apt for this elevated site, although there are numerous other explanations found in folk etymology, such as the idea that the word might trace back to a term for "small hill".
