Domaine Ostertag Riesling les Jardins 2020

Alsace, FranceDomaine Ostertag is Alsace legend, biodynamic since 1997, and known for non-interventionist wines of depth, and place. André Ostertag owns 14.4 hectares of vineyards in over 80 separate plots spread over the villages of Epfig, Nothalten, Itterswiller, Ribeauvillé, and Albé. Les Jardins comes from a 2.5 ha parcel of 30 year old vines grown on loess, quartz, granite and volcanic soils. It was native fermented and aged in stainless, where it remained 1 year on lees. Dry and light on its feet, with pear skin, lime pith, dried orange, subtle gooseberry, lemon balm, and fine but palatable energy that streams this through the perfumed finish. This shows the impact a quiet, graceful wine can have. Striking in its subtlety.Tasted: 19 August 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
