Riesling Grand Cru Osterberg 2019

An excellent terroir wine!

Story

The vintage
In 2019, our harvesters, bins, and tractors found their way to the fields to begin picking Crémant grapes on the 5th of September. The AOC Alsace harvest began on the 12th of September.
August rains (45 mm in 3 days!) were a blessing and the grapes ripened perfectly while keeping a lovely rich acidity.
Using slow, easy fermentations kept the complexity and character of each terroir. The quality of the 2019 wines is top-notch.

Reviews

93/100
"The intense candied lime and dried-rosemary aromas make this a striking Alsace dry Riesling. Full-bodied, bone-dry, and restrained, this will please those who find most wines from this grape too fruity. Long and firm finish." [+]
