Characteristics of the 2021 Vintage: The 2021 vintage in Alsace was conducive to producing Riesling grapes with a perfect balance of vibrant acidity and mature fruit flavors. Domaine Ostertag's Les Jardins Riesling from this vintage is a showcase of the region’s ability to produce Rieslings that are aromatic, precise, and richly textured.

Tasting Experience:

  • Appearance: The wine presents a bright straw yellow color, exuding clarity and vibrance.

  • Aroma: Aromatic notes of citrus, green apple, and a hint of white peach are evident, complemented by floral hints and a distinct mineral streak, characteristic of Alsatian Riesling.

  • Taste: The palate experiences a harmonious blend of lively acidity and fruit flavors. Notes of lemon zest and apple are balanced by a subtle sweetness, underpinned by a refined minerality that adds complexity.

  • Finish: A persistent and refreshing finish leaves an impression of fruitiness intermingled with minerality, highlighting the wine’s elegant dryness.

Food Pairing Recommendations:

  1. Marinated Mixed Olives with Chilli, Garlic, and Lemon: The wine’s crisp acidity and citrus undertones make it an ideal companion to the spiciness and richness of the marinated olives.

  2. Chicken Liver Pâté with Pear Marmalade and Lavosh: The Riesling's lively acidity and aromatic profile provide a delightful contrast to the creamy pâté, while complementing the sweetness of the pear marmalade.
