From an exceptional red slate portion of the Sonnenuhr, Selbach's 2005 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Auslese ?Rotlay? displays high-toned, diverse esterous fruit distillates along with some of the same dusty, smoky manifestation of botrytis possessed by the two star Auslese from this site. Vanilla cream, apple jelly, and white peach preserve on the palate are layered with juicy citrus, spices, nut oils, salt, wet stone, and indeed all the way down to the milk chocolate end of the spectrum. The enormous sheer density and a goodly measure of bright citricity keep the botrytis from becoming bitter or fatiguing. With such multi-faceted and abundant raw material and energy, this finishes with almost inscrutable intensity. It should make a great display of itself even 30 or more years from now. —David Schildknecht, 94 points
