A very dry winter, with 73 mm. rainfall from November, 2007 to February, 2008.
Spring arrived with rain and in May it rained all month. Between March and June there was 443,5 mm. rainfall which matches the total yearly rainfall in La Rioja many years, with 206 mm. just in May.
During the summer there was virtually no rain, only 44 mm. were collected between July and September. We did not see a single raindrop in August. The peculiarity of the summer, in addition to drought was the cold weather, little sunshine and cool temperatures. Fortunately, the autumn was spectacular, with sunny days and cool nights.
An ancient harvest, healthy grapes with excellent acidity, with good ripeness, although containing less sugar. The wines are perhaps lighter than those of other vintages, yet full of life. An Atlantic vintage which will bring back memories of other times.
Bush vines over 30 years old, yields limited to 1,5 kgs per vine.
In French oak vats, with controlled temperature.
In 50% brand new and 50% second use, French oak barrels. 16 months in barrels and 20 months cellaring in bottle.

Completely natural methods, clarification using only egg whites.
Bottles of 50 cl, 75 cl, 1,5 l, 3 l and 6 l.
High to medium depth colouring. Deep cherry edging and red background.
Red and balck fruit, between cherry and plum. The sweet spices in the line of clove and plum accompany the fruit. The wood is very well integrated. Fresh feeling that remembers a cold vintage through a nose full of details of the landscape and clear.
Good volume, fresh and with many hues. It advances deep down with the pleasant of the fine and well ripe tannins. Long and with good acidity wine with full, elegant, spice and fresh aftertaste. It appreciated the cold year of slow ripening and Atlantic profile. Long wine of vertical character.
