Tasting notes

Violet red with black tones. An attractive nose with aromas of fresh black fruits and prunes. The palate displays good concentration and balance, with sweet yet supple tannins.

Production

Vintage Notes

The influence of La Niña brought extremely dry conditions, a marked change from the wet 2016 growing season. In spring, the average temperatures were lower than usual, with late frosts that severely aected yields. February started cool and rainy, delaying the harvest, which took place February 16-April 20. Perfect weather conditions prevailed during picking that resulted in healthy grapes of very high quality. Yields: 1.3-4.5 tons per acre.
