Viticultural Year: Dry and cold winter. In spring, except for the month of April, precipitation values ​​were below the climatological normal and temperatures were mild, which allowed for budbreak in good conditions. In summer, temperatures were mild, without major heat peaks, with some episodes of precipitation, which favored a long and balanced maturation end, allowing the production of high quality wines.

Ideal to accompany meat dishes. Being a very gastronomic wine, it can also accompany white meats or oven-roasted fish
