Les Collines 2018

Lovely easy-sipping blend

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.
Terroir
Calcareous clay soil
Vinification
The vintage and harvest date are primordial in our winemaking 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.
