Sipp Mack Alsace Pinot Noir Vieilles Vignes 2015 FR-BIO-01

Goumand and fruity!
  • The wine
  • 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
  • Essentially calcareous-clay
  • In the vineyard
  • After a 3 year period of conversion beginning 2010, our vineyards are certified Organic in 2013 by Ecocert France. We are guided by our choice to develop the natural balance 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
  • Harvested at perfect ripeness, our Pinot Noir grapes are destemmed immediately then cold macerated for a few days. The first juices and the end of each press are kept separately after fermenting about 10 days. The final Pinot Noir Vieilles Vignes blend is 20% 2 year old oak barrel and 80% stainless steel tanks. The wine is bottled in late September.
