ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Domaine Ostertag Le Grand Bain
Domaine Ostertag Le Grand Bain is a blend of mostly Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris that spent ten days fermenting on the skins in stainless steel, including a portion of whole clusters. It was bottled after nine months on the lees without filtration or any added sulfur. The nose delivers a juicy burst of kiwi strawberry, bitter orange, and spice, and the wine is dry yet fleshy and textural on the palate, with a stony finish leaving echoes of turmeric-like spice. A novel take on Alsace that leaves us thirsty for more!
About Domaine Ostertag
To call André Ostertag a revolutionary winemaker is to tell just half the story. He is a pioneer, certainly, but also an ardent environmentalist. After training in Burgundy, André returned to the family domaine in Alsace with renewed zeal: he lowered yields considerably and introduced viticultural and vinification techniques from other regions to his own home ground. He looks for the nuance of terroir rather than the typicity of a grape varietal. André rejects formulaic, scientifically engineered wines, and since going biodynamic in 1997, has been an active member of the natural farming community.
