The 2019 harvest was beautiful. After a well-watered winter, when the soil and underground water supplies were generously restored, spring was mild, with no frost or heavy storm. These climatic conditions ensured good flowering and good fruit set. Summer was particularly dry and hot. On July 27, a heavy rainstorm watered our vineyard abundantly, which thanks to this water could normally provoke to end its ripening cycle.
The soil is complex and consists of clay and sandstone, which is colored deep red by iron oxide and refreshed by the salty air of the Mediterranean. The soil is very well drained which improves the quality of the grapes. The grapes are harvested early in the morning in order to maintain the best temperature. The grapes are placed in concrete tanks for a short maceration for several hours. They are then pressed and fermented. The temperature remains around 12 ° C at all stages.
