Tasting notes

Straw yellow with green and gold tones. On the nose, fresh and delicate aromas unfold: green apple, pear, and a slight hint of native herbs like thyme. The flavors linger on the palate, characterized by minerality and seemlessly integrated acidity.

Production

Vintage Notes

The influence of La Nina brought extremely dry conditions, a marked change from the wet 2016 growing season. In spring, the avarage temperatures were lower than usual, with late frosts that severely affected 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: 3.5-4.5 tons per acre.
 

Viticulture

Los Arbolitos Vineyard. Located at an altitude of 3,600 feet (1,100 meters), the vines are trained to vertical shoot positioning with drip irrigation. Vine age less than 15 years.

Coarse sandy loam with sharp stones eroded in the upper layers.

Vinification

Primary fermentation with native and selected yeasts; spontaneous malolactic fermentation in barrel; 12 months sur-lie aging, 50% new French oak. Bottled in March 2018. Unfined.
