The harvest of 2018 was completed in Koilani.
This was a year with major rainfall during May and June, but we managed to deal with the consequences on time so as to ensure the good quality of all our grape varieties along with their proper maturity.
The mild summer season of 2018, allowed the plants to grow and berry-set under 32°C, ensuring excellent organoleptic characteristics; especially for our Sauvignon blanc and later on for our red varieties, in September.
We expect that our 2018 harvest in white wines, which we will enjoy in December of 2018, to produce an intensely aromatic and fruity character. Additionally, we expect our red wines which will be available in the fall of 2019 and 2020 to be rich in color and to have the desirable alcohol content and soft tannins.
