Sipp Mack Alsace Rosé d'Alsace Pinot Noir 2015 FR-BIO-01

A fresh, bright Pinot Noir Rosé !
  • The vintage
  • Early ripening and well managed yields made 2015 a successful vintage! After a very mild winter, spring continued to be very clement and easy. The warmer months of May and June encouraged vine growth. A July heat wave (often more than 40°C) with no rain slowed the vegetative cycle considerably. Happily, in mid August, the rain fell and permitted the vines to grow and the grapes to ripen. By end of August, the vines were in perfect condition. The weeks before harvest were sunny with cool nights and light showers. The grapes matured perfectly.
  • Terroir
  • Calcareous clay
  • In the vineyard
  • Our domaine is certified BIO, Ecocert France.
    Our goal is to foster soil enrichment with cover crops, composts, mulching and minimum tillage. We adapt cover crops to our local rainfall. When abundant, we let the grasses grow. When particularly dry, we till the soil or use the rolofaca. Grapes are hand harvested in early October.
  • Winemaking
  • Hand harvested mid September. Destemmed grapes were macerated for one night to obtain the light rosé color before delicately pressing in a pneumatic press. The juices were fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Bottled on April 7th, 2016.

  • Tasting notes
  • Beautiful rose hip color. Red current and strawberry notes in the mouth. The fresh flavors carry on to a creamy, long final.
