Sipp Mack Alsace Riesling Vieilles Vignes 2016 FR-BIO-01

Pure and Elegant!
  • 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.
    In the cellar, a few fermentations finished more quickly than in the past. The wines are well balanced, fresh and easy to drink.

  • Tasting notes
  • A restrained nose on this wine has flickers of tangerine-peel freshness. The palate picks up this juicy theme on a concentrated, slender body where apple, tangerine and mandarin have a lovely moment before lingering on the dry, long, appetizing finish.
  • Food pairing
  • Perfect with fish, shellfish and withe meats.
