2018 was characterized with very low yields. Spring frosts brought on by dryer and slightly cooler weather, and subsequent hard winds caused couloure and resulted in lower yields all through Mendoza. Nevertheless, during harvest time – March for our Carrascal Malbec – the weather presented itself with no hail storms or rains leading to an excellent quality harvest with clean bright fruit expression and healthy grapes.
24 months in French oak barrels of 2,500-6,000 liters between August 2018 and August 2020
All grapes were harvested manually and selected at the vineyard itself, transported in small 20kg cases to the winery and immediately crushed.
