2019 Domaine Ostertag 'Les Jardins' Riesling

$54.00

Region: Alsace, FRA

Variety: Riesling

Farming: Biodynamic

André Ostertag is clearly one of the most dynamic producers in Alsace today, and certainly one the highest rated. Where in many areas Alsace has fallen behind star producers in Germany and Austria, Ostertag is one that bucks this trend. André is passionate and free-thinking, and his wines reflect this. Biodynamism was extended to 100% of the domaine in 1998, precluding any use of herbicides, chemical fertilisers and insecticides. All viticultural work is done manually, including harvest. In the cellar, press cycles are long and gentle, fermentations are long and conducted without artificial yeasts, and wines are left on their lees. Barrels are used for Pinot Blanc, Gris (sometimes) and Pinot Noir. There is little or no filtration of any of the wines, which rank among the finest in all of Alsace today.

The result is a delicate Riesling driven by white flowers, white peach and vine blossoms aromas. The mouth is round and mouth watering, with a fine and long acidity, and a saline character on the finish. There is a real nobility in this graceful Riesling. - Arthur Ostertag
