Domaine Ostertag Sylvaner Vielles Vignes

Sylvaner

Andre Ostertag is our kind of winemaker. His domain has been biodynamic since 1998, and he consistently turns out some of the purest, most focused expressions of Alsatian varieties going. Sylvaner is Alsace’s also-ran. Originating in Germany, it has acid but not much else which means it usually finds its way into blends and is rarely varietally bottled.
 
This is a bit of a game-changer, especially in this vintage. There’s huge concentration of spiced pears and quinces on the nose, and a honeyed generosity in the mouth followed by zippy acidity on the tail.
 
It is, quietly, one of the best balanced and most lovely whites on our shelves.
