With 324 mm of rainfall against the 350-400mm average, the lack of rain marked the harvest in Toro. The mild temperatures in June, July and part of August combined with the scarce rainfall resulted in healthy grapes with balanced and elegant ripening levels and great organoleptic complexity. Harvest began on September 16 and lasted two weeks. Wines have plenty of colour, good structure and great aromatic complexity.
Following a careful selection, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and the must underwent cold maceration at 7º C for 24 hours prior to fermentation, which took place at a constant 28º C in stainless steel. The total fermentation and maceration period lasted 18 days.
This wine was aged for four months in American oak barrels with an average age of less than four years.
