Cool and pleasant, with a delicate taste that it brings the flavour of the sun and the freshness of this land.
I remember that the vegetation this year has been vigorous as never before. Finally after 3/4 years of drought and heat we had a rainy winter. And as you know here the rain is always welcome.
The limestone layer just below our sands retains the water and releases it slowly during the vegetative phase. And that's why the plants sprouted quickly and well. A little moisture accumulated in the soil and in the air during the summer has called us to special attention for the management of powdery mildew. Fortunately, we opened up more and more at the base of the bunches trying to make them air.
Then in August the great rain that nobody expected.
It was necessary to select because the harvest was still far away and for this reason, due to the rigor and desire to bring home good grapes, we went two or three times to clean depending on the vineyards.
We therefore lost about 15/20% in the different plots but the grapes were beautiful and we did a good job.
Sometimes the color is a little more drained, but there are some nice acidity, even in white grapes and the wines seem elegant to me.
Of those agile harvests that will surely age well over time.
