The vines are planted on volcanic soils on the Andes side of Maule, where the days are cool and the nights very cold. 2018 was a cooler year, with very low yields of small bunches, and all of that accentuates the acidity and sharp minerality of the wine, which has insane parameters—12.5% alcohol, a pH of 3.05 and nine grams of acidity! Of course, the wine didn't go through malolactic and was kept with the lees for six months. This has a style in the line of the 2011, 2013 and 2016—all cold years—but in a more complete style, keeping the freshness but giving it a broader palate. It has strong herbal aromas and flavors (nettle tea?) and sharp acidity, very sharp indeed, in a slightly wild style. This should age forever. 15,000 bottles were filled in November 2018. - LG
