There is high level of heterogeneity, a solid clay foundation but a sandy surface, product of raindrop and temporary floods due to the heavy storms of the area.
The climatic conditions of 2018 vintage were radically different from 2017. The year started off with heavy snow on January 6th, which was a sign of things to come: a cold and rainy vintage. This year saw a return to a long-cycle harvest with a late harvest beginning on October 8th of the oldest and lowest-yield vineyards. The 2018 wines have great personality, with freshness and a very fruity character. This vintage is reminiscent of Ribea del Duero classic vintages: very fluid wines with great potential for aging.
All the grapes are harvested manually, taking advantage of the last sunny days
before the rain and frost season of the area. harvested the
2017 vintage on the first of October, one of the earliest harvests ever.

del Duero area.
