Aging

14 months in French oak, 65% new and 35% 1-year-old barrels.

Terroir

The estates vineyards are grown in a Mediterranean climate greatly influenced by the cold air that comes down from the Andes Mountains at night, cooling the valley all year round, but especially during the summer months. This means the day and nighttime temperatures vary significantly, a highly favorable characteristic for the maturation of world class grapes.

Vintage

Weather conditions for the 2018 vintage were quite exceptional throughout the entire vine cycle. Although the amount of rainfall was 25-30% lower than the average for the last eight vintages, 75% fell during the winter, generating substantial water reserves which ensured optimum conditions for vegetation growth. This was followed by a perfect combination of hot, dry weather and cooler spells at important stages in the cycle, bringing the grapes to optimum aromatic and phenolic maturity so that picking could start at the best possible time.
