Sipp Mack Alsace Gewurztraminer Sélection de Grains Nobles 2007


Top notch Gewurztraminer Séléction de Grains Nobles !
  • The vintage
  • Vintage 2007 is an exceptional year in Alsace!
    After a mild winter, a summery spring led to a very early budbreak. Harvest began on the September 10th. Warm days and cool nights with practically no rain during the whole month of September insured optimal ripening conditions.
  • Terroir
  • Essentially calcareous-clay
  • In the vineyard
  • 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. In 2007, the vines are cultivated with integrated pest management. The process is controlled by Ecocert France. Grapes are hand harvested beginning of October.
  • Winemaking
  • Grapes are placed in pneumatic presses by gravity and gently pressed for 3-6 hrs to preserve maximum varietal flavors and aromas. Juices are then fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks followed by 4 months aging on fine lees in large, old oak vats for micro-aeration. Sterile cartridge filtration and bottling takes place in August.
