Description
 
André Ostertag is clearly one of the most dynamic producers in Alsace today, and certainly one the highest rated. Where in many areas Alsace has fallen behind star producers in Germany and Austria, Ostertag is one that bucks this trend. This is a family-run property comprising 12 hectares spread over more than 75 small plots of vines within five villages: Epfig (55%); Nothalten (34%); Itterswiller (4%); Ribeauvillé (6%); and Albé (1%). André is passionate and free-thinking, and his wines reflect this. Biodynamism was extended to 100% of the domaine in 1998, precluding any use of herbicides, chemical fertilisers and insecticides. All viticultural work is done manually, including harvest. In the cellar, press cycles are long and gentle, fermentations are long and conducted without artificial yeasts, and wines are left on their lees. Barrels are used for Pinot Blanc, Gris (sometimes) and Pinot Noir. There is little or no filtration of any of the wines, which rank among the finest in all of Alsace today.

The 2016 Pinot Gris Zellberg is deep and intense but pure and stony on the nose. Rich, smooth and elegant, this is a very intense, perfectly ripe and textured Zellberg with fine but still young and grippy tannins and delicious acidity. Lush, long and fruity but still young. Tasted October 2018.Wine Advocate 93 (2016)
