Layered and complex with intense dark berry fruit aromas, laced with fresh herbal notes. Balanced, finely structured and perfumed.
The palate displays rich blackberry and herbal flavors backed by bright acidity and a fine, mineral finish.
The 2014 was the coolest harvest year since 2001. It was a year with pronounced regional contrasts. Abundant snowmelt (the Andes could be seen covered in snow throughout the whole harvest season) would have made this a very large harvest, except that everything slowed down with the cool weather in February, March and April, and the severe September frost. The harvest happened about one to two weeks later than usual and the yields were average overall. The wines stand out for their high natural acidity, freshness and concentration.
