Selbach Riesling Kabinett 2015
The 2015 Riesling Kabinett is super pure, fine and smoky on the nose, a classic Mosel Riesling that shines and attracts, and is the cash cow of the domaine. Mainly sourced from the Zeltinger Himmelreich, this is a light and super clear, lush, precise and highly delicate Kabinett of great finesse and elegance. The finish is long and salty, revealing a stimulating grip and tension. This is a picture-book Kabinett at 9.5% alcohol (and 33 grams of residual sugar) and one of the finest I have tasted from the 2015 vintage. This is gorgeous!
A ripe, juicy style, this Riesling delivers ample peach, apple, lemon-lime and mineral flavors. Fluid and balanced, this ends with tangy citrus and slate accents. Drink now through 2028. 700 cases imported.
This cuvée offers a simple but delightful combination of pure fresh apple wreathed in clover and apple blossom and informing a palate that makes a virtue of its looseness in order to charm, refresh and uplift, without being at all demanding. Its sweetness is discreetly supportive, and a kiss of wet stone reminds you that this is the Mosel.
