Sipp Mack Alsace Riesling Grand Cru Osterberg 2016 FR-BIO-01

An excellent terroir wine!
  • 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 7 weeks later.
