Domaine Ostertag Heissenberg Riesling 2019


Domaine Ostertag Heissenberg Riesling 2019
Heissenberg means “the hot mountain”, so named for its heat-driven microclimate. This lieu-dit located in Nothalten has a particularly hot micro-climate, due to its south-facing exposure combined with a limited airflow. It's a very steep hillside, located in a small “combe” between a granitic and a sandstony massif. As a result, it has a bit of both geological formations with mainly pink sandstone but also gneiss and a splash of volcanic ash resulting from the nearby Muenchberg.
The 2019 was harvested by hand on 3rd October. It was delicately airbag-pressed as whole bunches for 10 hours. It was fermented in stainless steel vats with natural yeasts and aged on its lees. It has a balance of 13.5% alcohol and 2g/L of residual sugar. It's a dry wine, certified organic and biodynamic. The 2019 vintage was a sunny one, which gave racy wines thanks to dry extracts rarely achieved before. There is a nice density in the middle of the mouth. Time and aeration will allow the wines to unfold. The finish is prolonged by beautiful bitterness and punctuated by a refreshing touch. - André Ostertag
