User Reviews for Domaine Ostertag Pinot Gris Alsace Aoc Barriques

Winemaker's Notes:

There is poetry to Ostertag’s practices. He looks for the nuance of terroir rather than the typicity of a grape varietal. He ferments the majority of his wines completely dry, so their versatility at the table surpasses that of many other wines from the region. In Ostertag’s experience, a careful use of oak subtly enhances the traditional Alsatian varietals from the Pinot family, giving them greater depth on the palate. He uses oak sourced exclusively from the Vosges Mountains and, for his Pinots, prefers barriques to the traditional foudres. He rejects formulaic, scientifically engineered wines, and since going biodynamic in 1997, has been an active member of the natural farming community.
