Sipp Mack Alsace Riesling Grand Cru Osterberg 2014 FR-BIO-01

An excellent terroir wine!
  • The vintage
  • In 2014, a mild and dry winter was followed by a warm spring and summer. August was cool and while the grapes matured correctly, acidities remained high.
    The Crémant harvest began on September 3rd.. The AOC Alsace and Grand Crus followed quickly on September 15th. Attacks of Alsace’s latest vineyard pest, the Suzukii fruit fly, created organizational havoc. The Suzukii likes pink and red skinned fruits and our Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Muscat and Pinot Noir were choice meals! Though drastic grape sorting created a 30% loss in some vineyard parcels, the resulting quality presents great varietal aromas.
