The 2018 vintage was characterized by an extremely dry climate. Our vineyards in Uco Valley suffered from a frost on the 6th and 7th of October, that led to a low yield. Despite a normal average temperature, we registered a lower number of days over 33°C than usual. The combination of these facts resulted in a quite early vintage. The variation between daytime and nighttime temperatures was exceptional in March, with an average of over 20°C in Altamira. During several mornings, we prepared to fight the frost before the harvest.
The grape musts were juicy, with excellent natural acidity, and a higher concentration of colour compared to other vintages. Fruit expression from must to wine was a signature characteristic of this vintage from the onset.
Deep ruby colour. The nose is expressive with notes of raspberries, coffee and figs. Complex and juicy on the palate with aromas of plums, fruit and spices, this well-balanced wine is an elegant expression of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.
