VINTAGE / HARVEST DESCRIPTION
The 2018 harvest began at CVNE on the 19th September and ended on the 26th October. Given the adverse weather conditions of this year's harvest, timing of key tasks in the vineyard was critical to obtaining high quality grapes.
The harvest began with a dry autumn, following one of the worst droughts in history, and winter began with long awaited rains, cold spells, frost and snow, which were common in past years. There then followed a cold, wet spring and a warm summer.
Considering that this was a year with high rainfall, the harvest took place clamly and selectively.
Pale, bright lemon in colour with green hints at the rim. The nose reveals aromas of orchard fruits like pear and Apple as well as spring flowers.
The palate encourages further tasting with its smooth, elegant mouth feel, with citrusy acidity and a long, fresh and fruit driven finish.
Recommended serving temperature 8 -10°C
