2007 Wine Year and the Harvest
2007 had a rainy winter that replenish underground water reserves, after four hot and dry years.
Wet conditions continued in the spring and early summer with low temperatures.
In the first two weeks of September there were constant daily temperatures between 35 °C and 38 °C.
These hot, dry conditions made the vineyards ripe perfectly, accelerating the sugar and phenolic compounds production while maintaining the excellent natural acidity resulting from a relatively cool summer.
As a result, the harvest produced perfectly balanced musts which led to wines with style and elegant, full of vitality and with a concentrated fruity character and superb freshness.
