Sipp Mack Alsace Pinot Gris Grand Cru Rosacker 2015 FR-BIO-01

An ultimate Pinot Gris - dry and savory !
  • 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.

  • Tasting notes
  • Very aromatic nose sends signals of dried pear and fig with honeyed overtones . Smooth mouth that's dry with a lovely balance. A rich acidity enhances the final. This Pinot Gris will marry perfectly with white meats like chicken and veal, firm fish like cod and well aged cheeses.
