End of 2012 Harvest

2012 harvest at Château du Garde, latest for 1 month, from mid-September with the white wines to mid-October with the reds.
This late harvest allowed us to secure the optimum maturity of each grapes, which were regularly controlled, throughout this period, to insure the right balance.
The grapes were finally of very good quality, despite the non-favorable weather, which stressed us quite a lot.
2012 vintage will be very fruity and have a good body. In average the alcohol level was 13.2 degrees.
Fermentation is still on going for the most complex red wine, when the white is already done, and is maturing slowly waiting for his first tasting in few month.
