2018 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Großes Gewächs *** - Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (3/4/2021)
-- uncorked 30 min. before initial taste --
-- tasted non-blind over a few hours --
-- AP #: ... 041 19 --

NOSE: medium-light petrol; spiced underripe carrots; papaya; medium to medium+ expressiveness; very nice.

BODY: vibrant medium golden yellow color; medium-light to medium bodied.

TASTE: right off the bat, this tastes feinherb (Ash agrees), but maybe that's just the intensity of the fruit (?), of which there is plenty (papaya); medium mineral note; hint of sandalwood; medium-low to medium acidity --- not mouthwatering, zippy, electric, or tangy; drinks best with a chill -- below cellar temp. -- which is not my usual preference, but it works here; 13% alc. not noticeable. It's a nice wine, albeit not in accordance with my preferences.

50, 5, 13, 16, 7 = (91 pts.)
