Riesling Muenchberg Grand Cru, Domaine Ostertag 2017
The monastery seated at the foot of this grand cru of ‘monk’s mountain’ still exists, initially planted in the 12th century by the Cistercian monks. This special place immediately invokes contemplation due to its isolation and total silence. From vines ranging from 30 to 75+ years old and planted on red sandstone and volcanic sediments, Ostertag`s Muenchberg Riesling is intense and concentrated. Perfectly ripe (mirabelle) fruit aromas are mixed with the spicy-warm terroir notes. Round, juicy, very compact and elegant, this Riesling is a tour de force.
