Sipp Mack Alsace Pinot Gris Tradition 2015 FR-BIO-01


A discretely sweet Pinot Gris !
  • 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
  • The vintage and harvest date are primordial in our wine making protocol. To guarantee impeccable quality, the harvest, once perfectly ripe, is pressed delicately for about 5 hours. To preserve the delicious flavors and aromas, we keep only the heart of each press. The fermentations continue until March. The wines are kept on their fine lees in stainless steel tanks and bottled between April and August.
