Cramele Recaş

Recas DOC Pinot Grigio

Enjoyed this. Especially for $8/bottle. Very mild. Hubby says it has a chlorine note which was off putting for him. I get chlorine on the palette but hey, that just tastes like summer to me. Doesn’t have the acidity like most Pinot grigios. Closer to a Cali pinot Grigio than an Italian. — a month ago

Domaine Ostertag

Vieilles Vignes Sylvaner 2019

An initial note of honeycomb which blew off. Not a variety I’ve had much but I must say this is intriguing with an interesting story. Originally from Transylvania, hence the name. Sylvaner had been originally planted as up to a third of the plantings in Alsace but now only 6%. declining in favour of Pinot Noir and Riesling. Ostertag’s Sylvaner vines have an average age of 55 years and have been farmed with biodynamic methods since 1998. The age of the vine brings a complex mineral wine with great depth of flavour which had the reputation of being quite dilute. Fermented naturally in Stainless steel and kept on lees for one year. Andre Ostertag, the owner, says Sylvaner is a cornerstone of Alsatian food and wine culture. I found the wine to be a hypothetical cross between Riesling, Chardonnay and Semillon. I loved it. — 2 years ago
