Guia Peñín – October 2020

Vintage 2018

With a snowfall in February, 2018 has been a year with abundant rainfall in spring and autumn, with records well above average. Very high temperatures peaks during the day in July and August. A warm September, refreshed again by the rain to obtain healthy, tasty and very balanced grapes.
