"Vineyard with certified organic production. After a dry and cold winter, a rainy spring followed, restoring the proper moisture levels in the soil to initiate the vegetative cycle. The fact that temperatures in the spring, and until midsummer, were milder than in previous years, somewhat delayed the entire cycle but enabled good plant development. At the beginning of August, a heatwave that lasted five consecutive days, with temperatures above 43 degrees and strong gusts of wind, caused severe damage to the varieties that are more sensitive to this type of weather, resulting in production losses. However, most of our vineyards, which are planted primarily with varieties better adapted to these conditions, ripened slowly and regularly, ideal to preserve the freshness and aromatic intensity of the white wines, and texture, concentration and complexity of the red wines." -Winery
