Mild Mediterranean climate. 2015 vintage started with absence of rain in most stages of the grape’s development, which provided excellent conditions for the grape’s health. It also registered higher temperatures than average for February and March, which made some varieties to reach ripeness earlier than usual, but it was beneficial for the ripeness of the Carmenere. Yields were higher than in other vintages. In general, a good year for the Carmenere.

Zalto Denk-Art Bordeaux Glass

The Zalto Bordeaux glass is recommended for weightier style reds, probably our most widely used glass when tasting in house, this glass is great for many different wines. The large bowl helping aerate and soften tannins whilst accentuating the wine's depth and concentration. The Bordeaux glass is the ideal choice for Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Bordeaux or Rhône style blends and many other red wines. Surprisingly, it is also the glass of choice for oaked Chardonnay, the shape of the bowl accentuating the balance of ripe fruits and oak.
