Yesterday we took our last 2 tanks of red wine, made from Braucol & Duras grapes, off their skins and so our 3rd harvest here at clos rocailluex is at an end.
On 1 October we kicked off the vintage by hand-picking Mauzac for our white wine. Its been pretty non-stop since then. Thanks to glorious dry, sunny weather in September and October the fruit was beautifully ripe and healthy. Its been a pleasure to work in the winery filled to the brim (literally) with fermenting juices and wonderful smells.
Thanks to everyone for all their helping hands throughout this harvest. We can’t wait to share the results and to do it all again next year!!
