Vintage Notes

Rainfall, due to the El Nino phenomenon -  heavily affected the growing season. The overall average temprature was lower than previous years, provoking an unprecedented thirty-day delay in the vines’ phenolic ripening. Average precipitation in both January and February was above the historical average. Harvest was delayed three weeks, but at the time of picking the grapes presented good concentrarion as well as a marked natural acidity.
