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

Robert Parker

"From six-year-old vines, the 2019 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese ** is very intense yet feminine and charming on the nose, like a naked Rubens woman in oil on canvas. The wine reveals perfect botrytis or overripeness that doesn't take anything away from the precision and finesse. It is round, gorgeously lush and voluptuous on the palate yet with crystalline, highly refined acidity and structure. This is a spectacularly intense, warm and ripe Auslese that is opulent yet lean, racy and piquant, finishing with stimulating salinity and precision. A fabulous wine, a showstopper if you so will." -Stephan Reinhardt
