Sipp Mack Alsace Pinot Gris Grand Cru Osterberg 2011

A full and generous Pinot Gris!
  • The vintage
  • 2011 was an extremely well balanced vintage. The days at the end of the growing season were sunny and warm. Nights were cool. Aromas and fine acidities were preserved.
  • Situation
  • These South-South East slopes of stony clay, calcareous marl soil (250-350m) enjoy perfect sun expositions.
  • Terroir
  • Our Pinot Gris Osterberg fields produce rich fruit sweetness that is elegantly balanced with crisp acidity. They are elegant and intensely silky.
  • In the vineyard
  • After a 3 year period of conversion beginning 2010, our vineyards are certified Organic since 2013 by Ecocert France. We are guided by our choice to develop the natural balances 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
  • The vintage and harvest date are primordial in our wine making protocol. To guarantee impeccable quality, the harvest, once perfectly ripe, is pressed delicately for about 5 hours. To preserve the delicious flavors and aromas, we keep only the heart of each press for our varietal wines. After 24 hours of cold maceration, the fermentations continue until February. The wines are kept on their fine lees in stainless steel tanks and bottled in late Summer before the new harvest.
