    92-93 I admit I was practically in ecstasy when Selbach unveiled a not-yet-bottled 2011 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spatlese feinherb, making even more abundantly clear his commitment to wines of subtle, hidden sweetness and alcoholic levity (in this instance, 12%). The purest possible evocation of top-notch Normandy cider is inflected with piquant apple pip and walnut oil on the nose and a corresponding infectious juiciness allied to sweetly-smoky, richly-piquant nut walnut and hickory oil and suffused with crushed stone coats the palate. The finish is gripping as well as refreshing. This classic expression of its great site – and I use that word “classic” advisedly; challenge the historical record if you will! – should prove riveting to follow over the coming decade if not beyond. I tasted a corresponding Zeltinger Sonnenuhr from tank as well – its precise destiny and label (if it’s even bottled solo) not yet determined – that showed promise, but was too yeasty to usefully subject to a tasting note.
