(barrel-fermented, with 10% new oak used): Golden straw. Pear and apple notes on the enticing nose. Then rich and fresh in the mouth, with round, suave flavors of tropical fruits and pear. Finishes creamy, spicy and long. Made from grapes grown on four different parcels (schist, clay-marly sandstone, marl with a deep clay base, and granite). Ostertag makes a very dry pinot gris that is almost always the first variety he harvests, even before the sylvaner and the pinot blanc.
