We characterize the year 2018 as a demanding year from the production point of view. The winter had a low rainfall, followed by a very humid and rainy spring, extending with these temperatures until the end of June. The summer of that year had very hot peaks, which led to a very irregular maturation and production losses in some varieties. These grapes were harvested by hand, in mid-August, at the same time that the white grapes were harvested.
 
Stage
Bottling in June 2019 and aging in bottle since then.
