WineDiva's Review

Special, satisfying, pristine.
This special 375ml bottle packs a lot of delicious.
Himmelreich (German for "kingdom of heaven") is the largest of the three single vineyards/crus/ appellations in the town of Zeltingen. Himmelreich stretches from the steep slope behind mid-village, to approximately one mile downstream. The steep part of Himmelreich faces due south, with chunky slate on top of the deep slate bedrock. Selbach-Oster owns major portions of the steepest, south-facing portions of Himmelreich.
It is intensely scented with lemon tea, bergamot and pristine stone fruit aromas. The palate is rich, but equally taut and perfectly balanced; the texture is slick. A delightful wine that makes me think me of lounging outdoors on a breezy summer's day drinking sweet tea and lemonade; perfectly refreshing and satisfying.
