The harvest 2019 is now finished !
The record is truly positive : quality of the grapes is impeccable and after the small volumes of 2017 and 2018, the quantity of 2019 is pretty good.
So we are more than happy ;-)
Now it’s time for the vinification work :
- Must pressing, winding and shedding to extract aromas, color and tanins
- Must density control to ensure that the alcoolic fermentation of the wines are finished before they rest for the winter season
- Offloading of the must to obtain the best press juice. It’s an operation usually made by the trainees ;-). As shown on the picture ;-)
Once these operations finished, the wines will be « cleaned » and will rest during winter season.
We will then wait for the spring and the rise of the temperatures for the malolactic fermentation to start.
