Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

An awe-inspiring offering, Johannes Selbach's 2002 Riesling Eiswein Zeltinger Himmelreich * displays aromas eerily reminiscent of a live lobster prior to being cooked. Scents of the sea and a certain earth sweetness lead to a thick, rich, deep, and powerful core of red currants, tangy sugar-coated limes, and loads of spices. This wine has magnificent purity, sublime concentration, and massive length. It will most certainly earn an even higher score as it harmonizes with cellaring.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

A mélange of quince, pear and apple aromas and flavors combine with a vibrant structure and moderate concentration in this attractive Riesling eiswein. Balanced and long, with a mouthwatering impression.

Wine Varietal: Riesling

Styles of Riesling range from bone-dry to very sweet. Riesling thrives in cooler climates with plenty of sun exposure and protection from the wind. Along the Mosel River in Germany and in France's region of Alsace, this variety has seen historic success. Riesling is also grown in Austria, Luxembourg, northern Italy, Australia, New Zealand, United States, and Canada. There are many grape names that use the term "Riesling" which are not true Riesling such as Welschriesling, Schwarzriesling, Cape Riesling, and Gray Riesling. White Riesling, also known as Johannisberg Riesling, is true Riesling. Typical descriptors for the varietal include apple, pear, peach, apricot, petrol, flint, steel, and gunmetal.
