Andre Ostertag isn’t one to flaunt his use of biodynamic principles – he much prefers his wines to stand alone. His ‘Les Vielles Vignes’ is much the same, filling an entry-level spot in Ostertag’s line with an eye for clean, ‘straight,’ dry flavor and zero ostentation. Pears, pineapple and lime zest grace the palate, before secondary characteristics of wet slate and dehydrated apple chips kick in. Pair with scallop crudo and paper-thin slices of daikon radish, dressed with olive oil, lime juice and a dollop of room-temperature butter.
