Pinot Gris Tradition 2018

A discretely sweet Pinot Gris!

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.

Reviews

90/100
"The shy nose on this wine reveals attractive glimpses of ripe but fresh pear. The palate sweeps in with freshness at first, illuminating the subtle texture, but then adds a hint of rounded fruit sweetness to come to an off-dry but very balanced finish" [+]
