CLIMATOLOGICAL DATA ON VINTAGE 2013
It was a cold year from sprouting in snowy April until harvest in the mid of October with mild temperatures and no rain. These conditions allowed for an optimal great quality, with no rotting problems and reaching very good maturity.
With the varaison the clusters were thin so that the vines developed their full potential with a suitble yield. The harvest was handmade, and only clusters in a perfect state were picked, clot by clot according to the optimal state of maturity, in order to obtain the maximum quality, The grapes were transported to the cellar in the shortest possible time, in small boxes which contained 15 kilos (33 Pounds).
Once in the cellar they were pressed and temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks were filled. Fermentation was performed at 20ºC (68º F), with periodical increases twice a day during the 4 or 5 days of maceration. Then the wine was removed from the vats and allowed to end its alcoholic fermentation.
The molactic fermentation took place in the same stainless steel tanks used before, allowing for the wine’s own bacteria to react with it in a natural way.
Red currant colour, with purple rims due to its youth. The smell reminds of red fruits, violets and red liquorice – primary aromas of the syrah variety used in this wine. The mouthfeel is agreable, smooth, round and fresh, with dominant fruit tastes and a long aftertaste.
