Growing Conditions

For the 2018 vintage, temperatures registered when reaching the harvesting months of March and April were cooler than the historic average. Combined with a lower rainfall of approximately 30%, led to optimal balance between the fruit expression and natural acidity. A year of great aromatic complexity and smooth tannins.

Harvest

Merlot - 2nd week of March 2018 / Cabernet Sauvignon & Malbec – 4th week of March and 1st week of April 2018. All grapes were harvested manually and selected at the vineyard itself, transported in small 20kg cases to the winery and immediately crushed.

Bottling

20th October 2020

Winemaking
