De Ostertag's Sylvaner Vieilles Vignes is geproduceerd voor 100% van de Sylvaner druif van stokken van ruim 50 jaar oud. De oogst vindt zoals bij alle wijnen van Ostertag, handmatig plaats en hier vindt dan ook de eerste voorselectie plaats. De druiven worden in zijn geheel en zonder ontstelen en zonder kneuzen zeer licht geperst en daarna worden de druiven gegist in RVS op een lage gecontroleerde temperatuur.

In het glas is de Sylvaner VV strogeel tegen het bleke aan met mooie lichtgouden stralen. In de neus heeft deze wijn verleidelijke tonen van kruisbessen, vlierbes, venkel, marjolein en zwarte thee. In de mond is de wijn weelderig, mondvullend met een uitstekende balans tussen het fruit en de zuren. De voor Ostertag bekende krijtachtige/minerale tonen zijn ook in deze Sylvaner weer goed te proeven. De afdronk is rijk en lang aanhoudend. De wijn heeft een uitstekend bewaarpotentieel en wordt met de jaren eigenlijk alleen maar beter. Wij adviseren als drinkvenster 2016-2023.

Samengevat is dit wellicht een van de mooiste (prijs in ogenschouw nemende) lunch-en zomerwijn. Heerlijk fris en fruitig met een minerale toon.

 

 

 

Opgericht in 1966 door Adolphe OSTERTAG in de buurt van het plaatje Epfig (30 km van Straatsburg noordelijke). Andre OSTERTAG, de huidige directeur van het domein, heeft de Ostertag wijnen naar een ongekend hoog niveau gebracht en heeft gekozen voor het maken van compromisloze wijnen. Kwaliteit gaat voor alles. Bijna vanzelfsprekend wordt er door André ook bio-dynamisch gewerkt. Alleen het beste is goed genoeg.

De Ostertag  wijngaarden worden enerzijds verwend (kleine opbrengst, geen pesticiden, geen insecticiden en geen kunstmest). Anderzijds worden ze op de proef gesteld omdat de wortels diep moeten gaan en zonder de 'doping' van kunstmest en het comfort van chemicaliën de groeicyclus door moeten.

Ideale, licht verteerbare lunch- en zomerwijn Zoetwatervis, salades, exotische gerechten met pikante contrasten. Verkwikkende meditatiewijn buiten de maaltijd om de vermoeidheid van de dag te verjagen en te genieten van een rust gevende zonsondergang.

Beoordeling 2014

eRobertParker.com #221 Oct 2015

From eight or nine parcels and different soils (granite, gravel, clay), and averaging 30- to 75-year-old vines, the steel-fermented 2014 Les Vieilles Vignes de Sylvaner displays noble floral notes along with ripe pear aromas on the very clear and appealing nose. Highly elegant and intense on the palate, this full-bodied Sylvaner has a delicate purity, stimulating freshness, great balance and good length. Delicious. The finish is very good, fresh and shows a real character. 
The 2014 fermented until March and underwent, like all of the wines since 10 years -- the second (malolactic) fermentation. Racked in April and bottled in May, this is an excellent proof that there is reason to fear the malo when only the grapes are ripe and not much malic acidity is left to be converted into lactic acid. 
Although Sylvaner is widely considered as a huge yielding grape, Ostertag never green-harvests his old vines Sylvaner which never yield more than 60hl/ha due to short-pruning, mechanic ploughing, and biodynamic farming. The grapes are hand-picked (in 40 kg boxes), the whole bunches are gently and slowly pressed, and the wine is aged on its lees before being bottled in the following spring.

Unlike most of his colleagues, André Ostertag looks at the other side of the Rhine river – where Germany’s Baden wine region is located – as the other part of an entity. "We used to speak the same language like the Germans, and if we speak Alsatian today, most of them do understand us because it is the same language." André considers the Rhine as an "artificial border," whereas the Vosges de facto divide the Romance language from the Alemannic

Millions of years ago, the Vosges and the Black Forest on the other side of the Rhein used to be one and the same mountain range, before the Rhine rift came into existence and created a wide valley between what should once become France and Germany. 

"Our colleagues in Baden and we have the same complexity of soils," says André, who doesn’t want to accept that this should be the only common ground. "We share the same culture, the same language," he says and mentions his father, whose natural language is German, not French. "Born in 1933, he knows to speak French but he speaks Alsatian dialect because this is his language." André, however, grew up speaking Alsatian; but speaking Alsatian in school after World War II was penalized. He had to learn French and of course he speaks French as his first language today. His own son, however, does neither speak Alsatian nor German, except he reads the wine labels of the family Domaine: Muenchberg, Fronholz, Heissenberg...

To André, who is the philosopher and poet under Alsace's vignerons, wine itself is a "language"' not only because wine "speaks" to all our senses, loosens the tongue, founds communities, is a "source of joy and knowledge like music, painting and literature," or "calls for our critical faculty, as well as our memory, and our memories." He also wants his wine to be "like a drink that raises the soul to new heights and satisfies the body and mind." Wines from the Domaine Ostertag shall "make people feel the poetry within the unique and wonderful character of our terroirs."

It is very clear that Ostertag spends most of his time in the vineyards, which have been farmed according to biodynamic principles since 1997. The fastidious work in his vineyards and a well-thought-out winemaking (handpicking in small boxes; no over-ripeness; slow and gentle pressings; stainless steel for reductive grapes, oak for Pinot; spontaneous fermentations; malolactic fermentation; long aging on the lees; perfectly dry wines and in certain vintages also sweet predicates) pushed this formerly unknown area onto the vineyard map.

The domaine, founded by Ostertag in Epfig in 1966, and thus free of traditions but with a great potential to develop its own style and to write its own history when his then 21 years old son André took the cellar keys in 1980, cultivates 14.5 hectares of vines spread over more than 100 plots and several villages in the lesser known part between Sélestat and Barr north of Colmar. 
"Since we never had négociants such as Hugel, Trimbach or Léon Beyer in this area, nobody was talking about villages like Barr, Mittelbergheim, Andlau, Nothalten or Epfig; even so our grapes were always sought after," says André. 

In fact, the territory between Sélestat and Barr is very special. The flowering is often five days behind Ribeauvillé and the grapes use to ripen more slowly and usually don’t reach that high sugar levels like further south. In the magic triangle between Ostertag, Julien Meyer and Kreydenweiss, there is not much limestone and the most interesting terroirs are made of sandstone and/or granite and gneiss, actually of schist and volcano sediments, which are rare in Alsace. These soils give very fresh and racy, rather floral and minerally scented than fruity wines of remarkable finesse and elegance. They are not as rich and powerful like many wines from Ribeauvillé, Riquewihr or the Kaysersberg valley, but they can age very well and never loose their vitality and delicacy. 

Since these crystalline rock, sedimentary and sandstone soils are predestined for Riesling, this variety makes almost 50% of the total vineyard acreage that domaine Ostertag is cultivating. Gewurztraminer (always made in an off-dry and sometimes sweet VT style here) is the second important grape, then comes André’s pet grape Sylvaner (from the lowland clay, sand and pebble soils), then Pinot Gris (from the sandstone/limestone of the Muenchberg grand cru respectively the silicious, sandy and clayey soils of the Fronholz), Pinot Blanc and Muscat (sandy loam with quartz rocks). 

But André Ostertag does not like to speak about grape varieties (except of Sylvaner, of course). "Geologically, Alsace is the most complex wine region of the world. It is a potpourri of highly diverse geological islands, but since World War II everybody reduces this complexity and sells grape varieties instead of the diversity of our terroirs." He does so too, yet, but already his Vins de fruit doesn’t reflect just the grape variety but also a certain style. Taste the barrel-fermented Pinot Blanc for example, which is quite unique in Alsace and much more than just a Crémant without bubbles. The Vins de pierres range clearly reflects the different terroirs, the lieux-dits Fronholz, Heissenberg, Zellberg and Clos Mathis, and is maybe only a question of time until André drops the variety names. The same can be said about the Muenchberg grands crus, although I don’t believe that Ostertag blends Pinot Gris with Riesling one day. 

However, it is not just the climate, the grape and the terroir André Ostertag is talking about. It is also the personality of the vintner who is, he thinks, much more important than the Grand Cru and makes the wine region of Alsace so special. "You need to have a strong character as a vigneron in Alsace" who knows and appreciates the resulting diversity of styles. "Alsace is not a complicated, but a complex wine region," he says. 

I highly recommend tasting the wines of the Domaine Ostertag: they are perfectly dry, straight and terroir-driven arguments against the stereotypes Alsatian wines have to fight against since so many years. Start with the Sylvaner and end cup with the Muenchberg crus of Riesling and Pinot Gris. Then compare the range with the ones of Patrick Meyer, Antoine Kreydenweiss, Jean-Michel and Mathieu Deiss, Marc Tempé, Olivier Humbrecht and Catherine and Theo Faller and find yourself not in a chaos but in a fascinatingly rich and complex world of highly diverse terroirs and vintner personalities. 
Then, but only then, include the ranges of Rebholz, Christmann, and Keller, include some Pinot Noirs from Baden’s Bernhard Huber, Franz Keller and Dr. Heger and start to sing "What a Beautiful World."
