Sipp Mack Alsace Pinot Blanc Tradition 2016 FR-BIO-01


The cameleon. An easy drinking wine that adapts to all types of dishes.
  • 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.
  • 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 in the Spring.
