Selbach-Oster Estate

German Wine, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer

About Selbach-Oster Estate

"Selbach-Oster Estate Selbach-Oster Riesling vineyards lie on a 4-mile / 7 km stretch along the Mosel starting in Zeltingen, upstream to Wehlen, Graach and Bernkastel. Vines have been cultivated here since Roman times. Every single vineyard on that short stretch of river has its own special environment and microclimate-its terroir. Each single lot of wine in the cellar shows its own individual, complex "fingerprint". No single day is alike and each year, each vintage has its own unique character, its "signature". The grapes mature slowly in a very long, temperate growing season. All the above represent traditional "values" which we at Selbach-Oster cherish; we try to refine and preserve the liquid result in the bottle, the sleek, tall green Mosel-bottle. All this in order to present you with Riesling the way we like it: with elegance, complexity and depth of flavor. With the subtlety and fragrance of flowers and the intense mineral quality from our slate soils. With the taste of delicate fruit and a lingering, crisp finish. The way it has always been.

We grow Riesling on 20 hectares (50 acres, as per harvest 2007) of steep, south facing mountain slopes that face the Mosel River . The Selbach-Oster vineyards are located on some of the best vineyard land in the heart of the Mosel wine country called " Mittelmosel"" - Winery

Highlighted Vineyards

The following soil descriptions are for mid-slope vineyards. In each site, vineyards located at the foot of the slope have deeper soils with much better water supply than further up the hill.

Zeltinger Schlossberg

Steep slope. Medium-grained Devonian slate as topsoil with medium-deep subsoil of decomposed slate mixed with some loam.

Zeltinger Sonnenuhr

Continuation of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr downstream, towards where the dam across the Mosel widens the water surface. The appellation ends at the church at the southern end of Zeltingen. Very steep slope with large outcroppings of rock. Large chunks of blue Devonian slate, very shallow subsoil of decomposed slate on top of slate bedrock. Driest soil of the five sites. Very close to the water surface of the Mosel.
