Sipp Mack Alsace Sylvaner Vieilles Vignes 2015 FR-BIO-01


Fresh, dry Sylvaner!
  • 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
  • Calcareous-marl – essentially alkaline clay soil that delays ripening and promotes a good acidity
  • In the vineyard
  • Our domaine is certified BIO by Ecocert France since 2013. Our goal is to foster soil enrichment with cover crops, composts, mulching and minimum tillage. We adapt cover crops to our local rainfall. When abundant, we let the grasses grow. When particularly dry, we till the soil or use the rolofaca which bends the grasses and creates a mulch. Grapes are hand harvested in early October.
  • Winemaking
  • Grapes are placed in pneumatic presses by gravity and then gently pressed for 3-6 hrs to preserve maximum varietal flavors and aromas. Juices are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks followed by 4 months aging on fine lees.
