Eventhough 2018 spring was rainy prior to the budburst, this stage and following ones beneficiated a clean dry weather. The warm and dry summer optimized the maturity of fruits and the aromatic component of Sauvignon Blanc. Harvest started on September 14th. After vinification, wines revealed to be lush, aromatic and structured. An excellent vintage.
