Selbach-Oster, Riesling Kabinett, Mosel, 2012


Not usually a Riesling fan, but once in a while it’s great. This is an uber classic example showing true form: straw colored, glowing like an orb, clean and slightly buttery with good acidity, hint of salinity and enough residual sugar without throwing off the balance. It craves fish, sausage, green beans, onions, tart flambé or any other kind of savory pastry.
