The 2019 harvest came to an end after three months of intense work. Nearly 30 million kilos were harvested along a process that started about two weeks earlier than usual and concluded at least 10 days ahead of the regular date.
The 2018 spring was rather chilly but the summer was hot. “It was a very healthy harvest. Technically, we had little rain. The challenge was to pick all the grapes on time and at the right time,” said Andrés Caballero, Winemaker Director at Santa Carolina.
What can be expected of the 2019 vintage? According to Caballero “this vintage features powerful wines of excellent quality and outstanding concentration. In the case of whites, the harvest started rather early, which is why we can anticipate very fruity and citrusy wines”.
