Victoria 2016 Grape
The cultivation of this grape was marked by a very hot summer, without storms or rains. These climatic conditions gave rise to great differences between alcoholic and phenolic maturity, which caused the harvest to be brought forward. This particular grape was harvested from October 3-7, at dawn, and manually. Immediately, it was transferred to cold rooms to keep the aromas intact, to avoid oxidation and spontaneous fermentation.
After selecting the best grapes in the winery and going through the different fermentation phases (alcoholic and malolactic), this red has aged for 14 months in 225-liter French oak barrels of very fine grain and medium toast.
