Selbach-Oster

Selbach-Oster
The ancestors of the Selbach family have been cultivating Riesling since 1661. The Selbach family originated from the village "Ürzig" and the Oster family comes from the small village of "Zeltingen" on the opposite side of the river. Today, Johannes Selbach and his wife Barbara are running the winery with passion for the wines and in respect of the long tradition. Johannes still can rely on the advice of his father who has built the business before him. The great-grandfather of Johannes owned a Mosel steamship and shipped his wines in oak barrels down the Mosel and the Rhine to the North Sea ports. These barrels again were made by Matthias Oster, a cooper and the great-grandfather on the paternal side of the family. Therefore, the winery developed in three fields, on one side as a top estate in the region and simultaneously on the other side as a négociant and brokerage firm, making wines from grapes and juice bought from other producers and consolidating the production of smaller producers, offering a broad and comprehensive range of fine German wines. The Selbach-Oster estate continues the long family tradition producing only Riesling. The 10.6 hectares (27 acres) of the estate are all on the terraced slopes of the Mosel in top vineyard sites like Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr and Graacher Domprobst. The production is approximately 7500 cases per year. Quality is the focus in the vineyards, where appropriate pruning and, if necessary, green harvest in August are used to keep yields low. Picking is done by hand and very selectively. Great care is taken to treat grapes, juice and wine as gentle as possible. In the cellar, traditional winemaking is preferred. The wines undergo a cold, slow fermentation and stay on their own yeast (the lees) for an extended period of time. The traditional 1000 Liter oak barrels called "Fuder" are still used. Selbach - Oster wines are enjoyed in fine restaurants and hotels throughout Germany, the neighbouring European countries and several countries overseas and have a widespread distribution in fine wine retail stores. The wines have been continuously rewarded by high scores and ratings, endorsing our commitment to highest possible quality. Visit the Selbach-Oster website.

Mineral to the MAX! I think it's time to give this vineyard its due: it's a great Grand Cru site, fully deserving the status of a Wehlener Sonnenuhr or Erdener Prälat. The pity is most of it is worked by the small growers of Zeltingen, amoung whom standards aren't particularly ... more

Selbach-Oster Rieslings are not "zeitgeisty" wines that change according to the whims of fashion. Nor are they "made" according to recipe. Though they are deeply delicious, they do not seek to "seduce" with short-term exotic aromas from specially cultured yeasts, aromatic enzymes or ice-cold fermentations. They are true characters, wines ... more
