Winemaker Notes

The 2018 harvest began on the 8th of September and ended on the 20th of October.  The vintage was marked by extreme weather during much of the growing season.  The episode standing out the most was the frost which struck on the night of the 27th & 28th of April.  Temperatures fell below freezing for longer than seven hours with the minimum falling as low as 2o degrees Fahrenheit causing uneven effects all over the vineyards.  The other event of note in 2017 was at the other climatic extreme, with very little rainfall, provoking drought conditions; the vineyards saw roughly half its usual rainfall.  The good work pre harvest and maintenance of the land done by our viticulture team has been fundamental for the favorable evolution of the wine.

Tasting Notes: Nervy purple layers. Nose with many notes of black fruits softened by the floral aromas that are punctuated by a touch of mineral from the soil, which is intermingled with the vanilla coming from their brief stay in the barrel. At the palate it is smoothed with a noble tannin which provides a long and persistent after taste. Perfect pairing with all kinds of fatty meats and game in the form of roasts, stews, in addition to the different cheeses in the area.  Recommended service temperature of 58 degrees Fahrenheit.
