Sipp Mack Alsace Pinot Gris Vendanges Tardives Amélie 2016 FR-BIO-01


A rich, excellent late harvest Pinot Gris!
  • 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
