Johannes Selbach is beyond a doubt one of the great producers in the wine world. But, being based in Germany (and not being called Egon Müller), their wines are available at totally reasonable prices. Usually we can stock many of them year-round. Possibly our favorite Mosel estate, Selbach is renowned for his ability to take a snapshot of a vineyard at one place in time with every bottling he makes. The Selbach family has been making wine in the Mosel for 400 hundred years, making them one of the oldest winemaking houses in the region. But the wines are not old-fashioned; in fact, they exemplify everything we love about modern day Mosel wines: racy minerality, finesse and beautifully balanced acidity.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 94
"From old, ungrafted vines, the 2018 Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spätlese feinherb "Alte Reben" is fascinatingly fine, pure and fresh on the coolish, slatey and flinty nose of crushed, wet slate. Silky textured, clear and crystalline on the palate, this is an elegant, crunchy, perfectly round and structured Domprobst with a long, intense, stimulatingly salty, yet always refreshing and coolish finish. A gorgeous wine."

What importer Skurnik Wines has to say about this wine...

Domprobst is a steep slope behind the village of Graach. Medium-size chunks of grey-blue Devonian slate over a thick layer of loam. Comparatively heavy subsoil with excellent underground water supply.

Natural fermentations in a very old traditional cellar, right on the Mosel.

The wine is fermented in old Mosel Fuder barrels, some up to 60 years old.
