Owning & Enjoying


Tasting notes

Deep ruby red. On the nose, aromas of forest fruits are complemented by spicy notes. The flavors on the palate are round and concentrated, supported by firm tannins that indicate maturity and balance.

Production


Vintage Notes

This season was influenced by La Niña and consequently it was significant drier, in contrast to the 2016 season. In spring the average temperatures were lower than historical, registering four events of late frosts that aected yields. February started fresh and rainy, delaying the harvest, starting finally on February 16th and ending on April 20th. Good weather conditions during harvest season allowed us harvesting grapes of excellent quality and health conditions. Yields: 1.33 to 4.46 tons per acre.
