Vineyard burst was uncommonly early in 2011, all the cycle was anticipated and harvest started earlier than ever before, nevertheless higher planted vineyards went slower than others, and when harvest was done all wines presented good quantity of malic acid, very important for the freshness in palate of the white wines where malolactic fermentation is not done.
Grapes were harvest during the day and transporter to the winery in a cooling truck, after sorting, grapes were pressed quickly during the night without any maceration, and decanted during 24 hours at low temperature. The wine fermented and aged in French oak barrel in the presence of the fine lees until bottling. No malolactic was done.
