Autumn and winter were colder and wetter than the previous year, with more rain and the lowest temperatures between November and February. Nonetheless, temperatures and rain remained within the average of the past 18 years. The spring featured higher temperatures than in 2016, leading to earlier phenolic stages. The hot and dry spring guaranteed healthy grape development. Early summer started off hotter than in 2016 (+2.0ÂºC), which caused ripening to begin sooner. The months of August and September ended up registering lower temperatures than in 2016, with grapes ripening more quickly and higher sugar levels, leading to more full-bodied white wines with notes of ripe fruit, and rich and concentrated red wines.
VINIFICATION / MATURATION
Co-fermentation of the grapes began in the wine presses, with foot treading at controlled temperatures (22 to 25ÂºC), finishing in concrete tanks.
Following malolactic fermentation, ageing took place in the same concrete tanks for 6 months. The unique micro-oxygenation conditions provided by this type of tank aim to preserve the wine's character.
