Riesling Heissenberg, Domaine Ostertag 2018


This is a genuinely individual wine due to the characteristics of the Heissenberg vineyard; Meaning the ‘hot mountain’ it is a south-facing vineyard with a soil of pink Vosges sandstone, gneiss and a granitic underlay, Riesling is produced here from 0.75 hectares of forty year-old vines. One of the most complex sites on the domaine, where the heat builds up and is retained. The Riesling here has the body of a red wine, with an indication of fine tannins, pronounced spices and an obvious mineral tension.
