Harvest 2015

viña cousiño macul The 2015 harvest showed a particularly productive year, where despite its large volume the quality was not affected. The enormous number of buds favoured the selection, and there was much to choose. In terms of the development of this season, it was rather longer and more dry than a normal year due to the poor rains. It was thanks to the reserve of moisture on ground that they were able to achieve good results. The summer came, and with it the budding of the vines. The big heat produced high night temperatures, so it was necessary to do consistent work in order to make the production time shorter, without affecting the quality of the grapes. A novelty this year was, the optical selector for the icon Lota, which traditionally was selected manually. Today, this latest generation machine, choose the grapes according to predefined parameters which are looking for a quality of excellence.
