2018 was a year marked by the rainfalls, 200(l/m2), more than in previous years, despite of the intense rain storms, winds and hail storms, the quality of the grapes wasn ¥t affected. Temperatures during the vegetative cycle show that it was a cold winter , typical of this area and a mild summer. Budbreak began between the 2nd and the 9th May, flowering on the 20th May and fruit set between 6th and 20th June. The beginning of the harvest was 17th September, firstly with the white varieties and ended 16th October with the red grapes. The rigorous monitoring of this variety was very important in order to harvest it at its optimum moment, which took place on October 9th. This harvest season can be described as a difficult harvest in terms of the adverse weather conditions but in terms of quality and quantity it was a very good harvest.


Fermentation takes place during 10 days at 28-30° C in our 100 hectoliter French oak vats. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. For the barrel ageing we put the wine in French, American and Hungarian oak casks successively for 17months. Finally, we left the wine to agea in bottle for over a year.
