Sipp Mack Pinot Noir Vieille Vignes
This fantastic organic Pinot Noir is a real favourite of ours. It has a delightful, bright ruby colour in the glass, the nose is plentiful in cherry fruit and on the palate it is soft, well fruited and velvety with a long and aromatic finish. A true masterpiece from Jacques Sipp that will delight all lovers of high quality Pinot Noir.

After harvesting the grapes at perfect ripeness, they were immediately de-stemmed and then underwent a cold soak for about three days to extract lots of aroma and colour. Fermentation took about 10 days and then the wine was allowed to age gently for 12 months in both oak barrels (of 2 years old) for 20% of the wine whilst the rest matured in stainless steel tanks. A final blend was made and after bottling in late September of 2017, it was allowed to rest before being taken to market.
This is a delicious Pinot Noir for those of us that admire elegance in a wine. That's not to say that it lacks power, but rather finesse and elegance are the watchwords. To enjoy it at its best, try to serve it cool (about 12 to 15 degrees) but not heavily chilled.
