2017 was a fantastic harvest in terms of quality, while the 2014 and 2015 vintages were more challenging with rains close to harvest, followed by the 2016 vintage with rains in spring and early summer. Mendoza weather returned to normal, drier conditions with the 2017 growing season producing a wine that is a fresh and pure expression of Mendoza, Argentina. In our commitment to offering only the highest quality product, we are transitioning directly from the 2013 vintage to the 2017 vintage. - VINEYARD LOCATION: Mendoza, Argentina - SOIL: Rocky soil with loam and clay
