Harvest Note
The 2017-2018 season can be defined as ideal, in the pace and intensity of the plant development as well as in the qualities obtained. It began with abundant winter rainfall throughout the entire central zone and precipitation of approximately 420 mm in the Leyda Valley. This enabled a significant amount of water to accumulate in the soil, and subsequently, the optimal development of all of the important phenological stages. The spring was frost free, which allowed for good budbreak and fruit set. The summer was cool in comparison with past years, and the hottest month had an average maximum temperature of 77°F and a minimum of 48°F. The encouraged slow ripening with excellent preservation of the natural acidity in the grapes and tremendous aromatic expression and the typicity of a cold-climate Sauvignon Blanc. The cool summer conditions delayed the onset of harvest to determine the perfect time to pick and thoroughly prepare for it. No rain fell during the ripening or harvest periods, which resulted in good health conditions and excellent chemical-physical parameters.
