The year of the short cycle. 36 days with temperatures below O ºC, during the winter. 478,6 mm. of precipitations in the vine-growing year. A frost on the 16th of April, reaching -4,5ºC that devastated the region.
September was rainy and a very good month of October. A limited production. Exorbitant prices of the grape. (The grapes of the frozen vines were better according to the quality, those vines which were not frozen had many grapes.)
Bush vines over 30 years old, yields limited to 1,5 kgs. per vine.
From the 9th to the 27th of October.
In French oak vats, with controlled temperature.
In French oak barrels, 60% new and 40% second use. 16 months in barrels and 20 months in bottles.
By natural methods, clarification using only egg whites, without filtration.
Medium layer with a red background and a very subtle slight evolution.
It has good intensity, with a fresh and fine nose with a profile of black and red fruit. It is very delicate and has the freshness of the Atlantic vintages.
Within the Atlantic profile it is more direct than RODA I 97 in which the undergrowth entertains you.
Intense, full, with a lot of fruit, now more than black, the freshness comes out from all sides. It is very lively and has all the character of the Atlantic: fresh, long, very direct, without great volume and very elegant.
Very good wine and with a lot of life ahead.
Tasting held in Haro on December 14th, 2017
