A lovely rich and textured old world style of riesling. Great complexity and real opulence. Quite a treat at this price!

Lots of tropical fruits, with a well balanced finish that's dry and refreshing. No real mineral note here, just a...

There is a nice salty tang to the nose of this wine adding to aromas of melon and pear fruit with some herbal notes...

A nice entry-level Riesling, with a touch of lemon and a sprig of petrol on the nose, and good length on the palate....

Basic Mosel , with soft, ripe apple and some light lees notes. Full and sweet, with a long sweet apple finish.

For Selbach's entry level it is not overly sweet, has a nice level of acidity.
$16.95 in B.C.

I really like the old intimidating German Gothic labels, sad to see that Johannes went with this New World fish label back in 2002.

The bottle opening is almost too wide in diameter for my VacuVin to seal, and as this Riesling is only 10.5% alc. I will have to finish it all tonight.
