VINEYARD AND WINEMAKING
2018 began with a cold winter, typical of the Ribera del Duero, when minimum temperatures reached -12 C. Temperatures remained low during the early spring, despite these conditions, bud break took place within the usual dates, at the end of April. After a very dry 2017, rainfall made its appearance at the end of winter and continued throughout the spring, the quantities collected were very abundant, with 2018 being classified as a very wet year in the area. The vegetative development of the plants was favoured by the temperature regime and the water reserves, which also led to a considerable increase in the size of the berries. As a consequence of this increase in the size of the grapes and despite the fact that temperatures during September and October were warmer than usual, ripening was delayed.
The harvest was healthy and of exceptional quality.
14 months in the cellar, ageing in different formats and a selection of barrels of different formats.
