On the nose you get notes of red fruits, strawberries raspberries and a hint of caramel. We have similar aromatic perception on the palate. Wine is dry, with pleasant freshness and roundness. A perfect summer wine. Drink from 2019 to 2020.
Grapes were hand-picked in 15 kg crates, crushed with no skin contact and fermented on 15-18°C for two weeks in a stainless-steel tank. Wine was aged on lees for a couple of months before being racked, fined, roughly filtered and bottled in April.
Vintage 2018 was characterised by extremely cold winter with lots of snow lasting until the end of March. A winter that we haven’t seen for a decade in our region. The start of phenology was late, however high April and May temperatures pushed it to be among the earliest vintages on the record. Due to the spring frosts in two previous years 2018 vintage offered a wealth of grapes that had to be rigorously controlled just before veraison (late July) to obtain targeted quality. As anticipated due to the warm spring and summer and not much water restrictions in June and July whites were picked as early as in beginning of September, whereas reds matured perfectly and were harvested during the last days of September after 3 weeks of ideal dry and rather warm weather.
