A BRIEF VINTAGE DESCRIPTION
This vintage has been officially rated as Excellent. Dry, sunny weather with moderate day-time temperatures and low night-time temperatures provided the ideal conditions to successfully conclude the grapes´ ripening process.

WINE MAKER: Gloria Molinet

HARVESTING
The harvest started at the end of September. Most of the grapes were manually harvested and then transported to the winery in small crates.

WINE- MAKING 
The grapes are fermented under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Part of them is de-stemmed meanwhile remaining grapes are fermented using the carbonic maceration method. We achieve fruity aromas and a very soft and fresh wine.

Outstanding complexity and elegance, a frank, intense and complex nose with milky and strawberry fudge hues and herbal hints.

The palate is fresh, with an outstanding, harmonious fruity expression and marked by balanced tannins.
