Integrated Production (certified)
An extremely dry year, with rainfall concentrated between December and February. The period from March to August was hotter than average, resulting in an early vintage. With these higher temperatures during the growing season, most grapes were picked in very ripe conditions resulting in rich wines with body and depth.
Deep and dark limestone and clay.
AVERAGE AGE OF VINES
Temperature controlled fermentation (28ºC) in small stainless steel tanks.
12 months aging in American oak barrels, 12 months bottle ageing before market release. Great ageing potential.
