The 2012 growing season resulted in a phenomenal bounty of perfect fruit. It was marked by a drama-free spring, low rainfall, moderate summer temperatures and several heat waves at the close of the picking season that accelerated the grapes into perfect ripeness. We are quite happy with the results, which gives our Vitesse a beautiful balance of deep color, structure and concentration.
Winemaker Miquel Caratachea’s care of the fruit blessed us with a spectacular wine that displays a bright garnet hue and enticing aromas of frambois, vanilla and cinnamon. The palate is rich and textured, with flavors of current, sweet cassis, huckleberry and pencil shavings all carried by an underlying river of spicy, supple tannins through the long finish. Drink now or cellar for 8 years or longer.
