Civiltà del bere – Italian Wine magazine & Sipp Mack !
The village of Hunawihr is situated in a magnificent area completely surrounded by an amphitheater of vineyards. Here, we met Jacques Sipp, owner of the domain Sipp Mack, who explained with passion and competence how his wines represent particularly well their soil and region. Our vertical tasting of Riesling Grand Cru Rosackers remains an unforgettable experience. The Riesling Rosacker 2000 is one of the most interesting wines ever tasted, characterized by an ample, complex and very elegant bouquet. A rich minerality, with notes of gun powder, quartz, banana, candied cedar and pink grapefruit. The mouth is powerful, almost opulent with notes of spice, figs, tobacco and incense. The final is long with notes of balsamic, lemon and grilled hazelnuts. This wine can be aged 15 years. To drink on its own or with shellfish.
Note to amateurs of exceptional wines : The Riesling Rosacker 2000, as well as a selection of collection wines, are available in small quantities.
