The weather conditions during the 2018 vintage were radically different from 2017. The year began with a heavy snowfall on January 6, which foreshadowed a cold and rainy vintage. After one of the earliest harvests in history in 2017, we returned to a long vegetative cycle with a late harvest that began on October 12 with the white Tempranillo. The 2018 whites have great potential, with freshness and acidity. Without a doubt, one of the best white vintages of the last 10 years.
