2018 vintage gave a generous production, healthy, of excellent flavor, with relatively moderate alcohol levels and more freshness.
The season began with a cold and rainy winter 2017, which allowed for sufficient accumulation of water in the soil and an adequate sum of cold hours. Spring 2017 did not register significant frosts and continued with good temperature and luminosity conditions, allowing excellent shooting and flowering. From December 2017 and until mid-February 2018, the maximum temperatures were moderate throughout the central zone and in particular in Apalta, which determined a prolonged fruit setting and maturation. After the second fortnight of February 2018 there was a temperature rise, with temperatures above 35°C, accelerating the processes of maturation on early varieties. March was fresh, which allowed for a slow accumulation of sugars without a great loss of acidity, which are both key in wines of great balance. Autumn did not bring any rain allowing later varieties to be harvested at optimal maturation.
It will be remembered as one of the greatest cold vintages of the 21st century in Chile.
