The 2022 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese offers a clear and finely flinty bouquet of crushed rocks and precise, bright, slightly citric fruit aromas. Lush and concentrated, with lively fruit acidity and savoriness, this Spätlese tastes like a ripe Riesling berry. This is a superb terroir for dry summers such as 2022 due to 40-year-old vines rooting on a layer of finely weathered gray and blue slate. 8% stated alcohol. Screw cap closure. Tasted at the domaine in November 2023.
