This « village » wine is the pure expression of theRiesling berry. The result is a delicate Riesling driven by white flowers, white peach and vine blossoms aromas. The mouth is round and salivating, with a fine and long acidity, and a salty sensation in the finish. There is a real nobility in this graceful Riesling. It has a dimension close to the « Vins de Pierre » yet without reaching their fullness.
Wine Advocate 93 points - Ostertag’s 2011 Riesling Vignoble d’E displays a remarkable combination of lushness, glycerol-richness and textural tenderness with clarity and exuberantly bright refreshment. Representing as usual the first grapes of this variety that he picked, which was however not until September 30. Luscious white peach and honeydew melon are mingled with nut oils and saliva-drawing saline-sweet, iodine-tinged lobster shell reduction, garlanded in peony, and dusted with invigoratingly biting white pepper, leading to gloriously mouthwatering and vibrantly interactive finish. It’s hard to imagine a village-level Riesling getting much more exciting than this phenomenal value. Plan to revisit it through at least 2020. (Aug 2014)

Wine maker notes
The « Vins de Fruit » are wines in which the primary expression of the variety is more important than the notion of « terroir », which is considered here to the scale of a village. The « E » stands for Epfig as this Riesling is the result of a blend of fifteen different plots located in and around the village of Epfig. The soils are mainly clay, gravels ans sands. The result is a fruit-driven wine with no « terroir » ambition. It is the reflection of the variety’s dry and fruity personality, yet with good depth and amazing minerality due to biodynamic viticulture.
