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
  • After a 3 year period of conversion beginning 2010, our vineyards are certified Organic in 2013 by Ecocert France. We are guided by our choice to develop the natural balance in our soils. All chemical herbicides and pesticides are replaced by precise, well timed organic treatments. Each vine’s extraordinary potential is developed by plowing and hoeing the soils. The grapes are hand harvested between mid September and October.
  • Winemaking
  • Harvested at perfect ripeness, our destemmed Pinot Noir grapes are cold macerated briefly. As with our white wines, we keep only the heart of each press to preserve the fruity aromas. The fermentation continues in stainless steel tanks until bottling in the Springtime.
