Notes about product
The 2019 season was marked by a very dry winter, followed by a cool, rainy spring. This provoked a late veraison, but a warm, sunny summer allowed the grapes to ripen, and even move forward the harvest of the white grapes. The fall continued warm and dry, ending with a uniform ripening of the red grapes, finally arriving at harvest with well-ripened healthy grapes. The yields were within what was expected, both in quality and quantity.
Half of the grapes for this wine underwent a cold maceration and the other half were whole-cluster pressed. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 57ºF (14ºC) for 25 days. The new wine was fined, filtered, and carefully bottled to preserve its freshness and fruity expression.
Highly aromatic citrus fruit with notes of pears and apples. Young and fresh on the palate with pleasing balanced acidity. Enjoy with mild fish, shellfish, ceviches, and crab.
