Product Description

The Pinot Gris Les Jardins is a blend of four small "gardens" of vines, farmed biodynamically, and located in the towns of Epfig, Itterswiller and Albé.
These plots are based on three distinct natures of soil: Clayey sandstone (50%), loess (15%), and schist (35%). A small part of the lieu-dit Zellberg's youngest plot - on clay-limestone-sandstone soil - was also blended into this cuvée in 2017. Ostertag has been making Pinot Gris its own way since 1984, using 228-litre Burgundy oak casks for fermentation and ageing, and taking it to a fully dry balance which is even now pretty unusual in Alsace.
The 2017 vintage was hand-picked on 13th September (29th September for the Albé plot). It was gently pressed as whole bunches, in a pneumatic press, for about nine hours. It fermented with natural yeasts in used 228-litre barrels, and went through malolactic conversion. It was kept in the same barrels for 11 months, and bottled early September 2018.
The result is a fresh and intense Pinot Gris, with a very refined floral and slightly smoky nose, and ripe yellow fruits, citrus fruits and honey. In the mouth the complexity of the soils and the barrel vinification is felt through a combination of full body and vibrant, refreshing personality with an intense mineral structure.
