End of the white harvest

After five days of picking, we finished harvesting the white grapes yesterday.

The quantity of grapes picked is lower than in previous years (between 16 and 20 hl/ha) and can be explained, in part, by the drought and the numerous heat waves this summer which resulted in much less juice in the berries.

Even though the harvest is smaller, there is a lovely aromatic intensity and good acidity when we taste the musts.
