Sipp Mack Alsace Rosé d'Alsace Pinot Noir 2016 FR-BIO-01


A perfect Summer treat!
  • The vintage
  • After a number of low yield harvests, the 2016 production was normal.
    Initially, cool, wet temperatures slowed the spring vegetative growth greatly. Fortunately, the weather improved but residual moisture created perfect conditions for mildew. Extra vigilance was demanded to protect the crop. An August heat wave and subsequent warm weeks until harvest created hydrique stress in some fields but the grapes eventually ripened perfectly. Harvest began on September 20th and finished 6 weeks later. In the cellar, a few fermentations finished more quickly than in the past. The wines are well balanced, fresh and easy to drink.
  • Terroir
  • Calcareous clay
  • In the vineyard
  • Our family vineyards are certified Organic by Ecocert France since 2013.
    Our choice to develop the natural balances in our soils guides us. Chemical herbicides and pesticides are prohibited and replaced by appropriate and precise organic treatments at all times. Plowing and hoeing aerate the soils and encourage full development of their extraordinary potential. The grapes are hand harvested between mid September and October.

  • Winemaking
  • We macerate our ripe, destemmed Pinot Noir grapes briefly. As with our white wines, we keep only the heart of each press to preserve the fruity aromas. After 24 hours of cold decantation, the fermentation continues in stainless steel tanks until bottling in the Springtime.
