SELBACH-OSTER Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Trocken*** “GG” 2018

(Mosel, Germany) $37

At its best, German riesling doesn’t just have acidity; it has juicy, delicious acidity—the kind that’s so kinetic, you fear the wine glass might burst. Not to mention a minerality so vibrant it seems to scream with excitement. This very bone dry (trocken) riesling from Selbach-Oster is a great example. The freshness and citrusy precision are off-the-charts. If ever there was a terrific wine for drinking right this (summery) minute, this is it. The “***” references the single oak vat this wine was made in, and “GG” denotes this dry wine’s equivalency to a grand cru. The Selbach family’s wine heritage goes back to 1660, and the family is deeply passionate about riesling. 13% abv
