Riesling - Les Jardins - Domaine Ostertag - Alsace - France - 2018
A beautiful wine from Domaine Ostertag. This Riesling is made from the vineyards surrounding the winery, hence 'Les Jardins', and is incredible pure, with zesty citrus fruit, a touch of apricot and lovely minerality. Wonderful stuff.
Biodynamic since 1997, André Ostertag is one of the stars of the Alsace wine region. Since 2017, he’s handed over reins to his son Arthur, and this 2018 Riesling is the real deal. It really won us over with its balance and purity.
Domaine Ostertag Riesling ‘Les Jardins’ 2018 Alsace, France
Biodynamic farming. From Andre Ostertag’s vineyards André’s estate vineyards around Epfig, this is lively pure and nicely rounded with a lovely citrus core. There’s a crystalline edge to the fruit. Very fine and linear with nice texture and purity. Plenty of interest here. Affordable deliciousness.
