We had an outstanding harvest in 2007: just the right combination of factors to maintain balance and award great character to all of our wines and in Clos Apalta in particular. The wines have beautiful balance, good levels of acidity, deep color and very elegant fruit with velvet-like tannins. Spring-summer in 2007 brought cooler temperatures, causing a delay in the fruit set. Good temperatures by the end of Summer allowed an extension of the season. In March, with the beginning of Autumn, we continued to enjoy great conditions: the right luminosity and temperature allowed us to wait patiently for the perfect phenolic maturity.
