Riesling Clos Mathis, Domaine Ostertag 2018
The Clos Mathis belongs to Ostertag’s long-time, retired vineyard manager, Hubert Mathis. This remarkable 0.6-hectare granite vineyard surrounded by stone walls is located in Ribeauvillé, in line with the grand crus Geisberg and Kirchberg. This particular location allows slow ripening, preserving acidity and finesse in Riesling.
Whole bunch pressed, naturally fermented in stainless steel, and kept on lees for one year. Flint, green apple and perfumed with a beautiful floral delicacy, its allure will be emphasised if decanted half an hour before serving.
