Domaine Ostertag Sylvaner Alsace Aoc Vieilles Vignes 2010

External Review:

An extraordinary example of this variety. Intense minerality and rich, voluptuous fruit character make this wine perfect as an aperitif, or a fantastic accompaniment to your favorite shellfish dishes. Importer Notes - To call Andre Ostertag a revolutionary winemaker is to tell just half the story. He is a pioneer, certainly, but also an ardent environmentalist (as demonstrated in both his wine and his sculpture, another passion). After training in Burgundy, Andre returned to the family domaine in Alsace with renewed zeal: he lowered yields considerably and introduced viticultural and vinification techniques from other regions to his own home ground. The 1996 vintage marked his first collaboration with KLWM, and the following year he brought biodynamic viticulture to his fourteen hectares of vineyards, including his flagship parcel in the Muenchberg Grand Cru.
