Bespén White 2022

Characteristics of the vintage: 2022 was characterised by high temperatures and low rainfall throughout all seasons. A fairly dry autumn was preceded by sufficient rainfall to allow the plant to recover after the 2021 vintage. The first part of the winter was very cold and dry, which was very favourable for pest and disease control. The second part of the winter was marked by milder temperatures which led to early bud break.
After the winter drought, the rainy spring arrived and the high temperatures at the end of March and April accelerated the growth of the plants, which experienced a great vegetative development. As a result, flowering took place in dry and windy weather, without any sign of fungal diseases and in excellent conditions for fruit set.
Veraison began in mid-July, which was a very hot month, as was August. The lack of summer rains was compensated by a few supplementary irrigations, which were providential for good ripening and balance.
The harvest at the end of August was slow and uneventful.
Elaboration: After being harvested at night and transported to the winery in a short period of time, the grapes are destemmed and crushed and then cold macerated for about five hours, after which they are gently pressed and the must is racked. The must ferments at 16º, after fermentation the thick lees are separated by decanting and racking, then it remains for 3 months in a stainless steel tank in contact with its fine lees.
Impressions of the processor: A wine with an excellent acidity and freshness characteristic of this variety, the work with the lees provides unctuousness, resulting in an agile and full-bodied wine, very dry.
