VINTAGE NOTES 2019 Alejandro Lagrein

This vintage will be remembered as a hot and dry harvest. The season started with budburst occurring at the usual time, but a hot summer required exceptional irrigation management to nurture the vines to their full potential. Challenging climatic conditions were managed, which resulted in good to excellent wine quality.
