Almost all the grapes are now in the winery and the excitement of my last message is turning to a slight case of fatigue. The hard work is paying off, the Malbec and Tempranillo fermentations are done and the wine is safely in barrels and that is my new source of excitement. Never will a harvest go by that isn’t declared the “best ever” (just our optimistic nature I suppose) but the fruit we have this year looks like the “best ever”. I will keep you posted as we care for this wine and prepare it for your glass.
As the harvest and crush continues I am constantly aware of the debt we owe our Jefe de Bodega Santos del Toro. Here he is and if you see him around don’t forget to give him a big gracias.
