Harvest 2017: Characterized by fresher and more Atlantic wines. It was a very interesting harvest, with October being an unusually warm month, compared to a cold summer, hence allowing the grapes to finish ripening properly. The main characteristics were extreme colour richness, featuring bluish tones and an aroma reminiscent of black fruits and minerals with some balanced, floral tones in the mouth with sufficient tannin weight and a good length and lasting finish.
