Winemaker's Notes

(From 1999 Vintage) 1999 was a year with no particular problems; the musts had a very good acidity-sugar balance, the berries had thick skins and the extraction of colour and tannins was easy. We macerated for about 3 weeks, without forcing the extractions, trying to maintain temperatures below 32° C in order to bring the fruit and the elegance of the wines forward. Very good extraction of colour, high acidities, with low levels of malic acid as a direct result of the perfect maturity of the grapes. The tannins are there, well coated by an intensely fruity flavour and plenty of fat.
