Bright and ripe and friendly. Groundbreaking? Soulmoving? Nah but balanced and friendly and not bad with fries. The eye: medium golden yellow. The nose: ripe lemon, Meyer lemon, ripe golden apple, a hint of honey. Tongue: dry AF, so much acid alcohol my guess? Tastes like13%ab 12.5% whaaaaa okay. On the taste buds more of the nose: ripe and raw apple some white pear some citrus acid and earth. Look for the acid. Always the acid. — 18 days ago
A dynamite Riesling of energy and persistence. In the typical, rambunctious Ostertag style that is so gratifying - ginger, pepper, lavender, and ripe peach. What a treat! — 12 days ago
The 2018 Spring Confrerie dinner was a wonderful time with some great Alsatian wines (and non-Alsatian wines) and fantastic food!
This was already good at pop and pour, but you’re doing a disservice if you don’t let it sit in the glass a while. With some air, this wine jumps out of the glass with that classic petrol note. On the palate, very crisp acidity with lime, stone fruit and a mineral driven finish. — 6 days ago
😍 High minerality: clay, mushroom, truffle. Honey, ginger, beeswax, smoke, cardamom at the back, honeysuckle, stewed stone fruits 🍑, ripe/baked apple and pear. Ripe citrus. Tropical notes as well. Yellow/gold. Medium plus body, higher than high acidity. — 9 days ago
Excellent representation of Alsace Riesling, mineral driven with wet slate, crushed rocks and stone fruit with nice acidity — 16 hours ago
Always outstanding, and it’s drinking well for a ‘13. Opened up in the glass but wasn’t overly tight. — 3 days ago
