Pinot Gris Grand Cru Rosacker 2018

An ultimate Pinot Gris Grand Cru!

Story

The vintage
The exceptional 2018 vintage will be remembered as much for its unusual weather as the care deployed in choosing the best harvest dates.
For the first time in Sipp Mack’s history, our harvest began in August with the Crémant grapes and finished 5 weeks later with the grapes for our late harvest wines! Patience was important as we micromanaged harvest dates to ensure the best grape quality. The challenge was successfully met, and the resulting wines are pure, refreshing and beautifully balanced.

Advice

Serving
Conserve wine horizontally at an ambient temperature of 10-15°C. Ideally served between 8-10°C.
Tasting notes
Generous hints of ripe and dried pear are edged with gentlest vanilla spice. The tannins are well balanced by the fleshy full body. The dry finish is clean with a marine minerality that's a bit salty.
Food and wine pairings
This Pinot Gris will marry perfectly with white meats like chicken and veal, firm fish like cod, and well-aged cheeses.
