TN: Selbach-Oster 2005 Riesling Spatlese, Mosel Saar Ruwer

Fairly strong petrol/diesel and some new inner tube accompanying the lime and citrus notes on this nose. Nearly perfect sugar/acid balance with flavors of orange marmalade, sweet Meyer lemon, and honey wrapped up in a diesel rag. Excellent chalky minerality finishes the wine clean and pure. Very nice sipper, after a rather warm day up here in the vineyard.

After a day in the vines, that sounds refreshing! Dig the new inner tube descriptor.

Really heated up here today in the vyds too.

love Riesling. Hate petrol/diesel, but fortunately I think I don’t sense it most of the time. Thanks for the note.
