Product details

Winemaking

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. After cooling truck transportation and sorting, the grapes are pressed very quickly during night without any maceration at low temperature, and decanted during 24 hours at low temperature. The fermentationt occurred in French oak barrels of 228 lts and aged for 10 months with the fine lees, without malolactic fermentation or batonnage. The wine was bottled in the end of June.

Tasting Notes

Intense aroma, with complex fruit notes of lemon, orange and apricot, more rich than in previous editions is also showing strong wet stone character contributing for the persistent mineral character. The palate is very firm, with great complexity and freshness thanks to the higher content of malic acid. The fruit character combines with the white flowers notes, and the almond and nuts aromas. Redoma 2011 is very intense and persistent in the palate, with great ageing potential.
