Sea Essences

One of the classic single varieties of Sumarroca, produced for more than 25 years ago with vineyards from of the Sumarroca estate.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VINEYARD

Wine made from Arnan plot, planted in 1985. Chalky soil, poor in organic matter and with remains of gravel.

HARVEST

The 2016 vintage has the main characteristic and determining fact of being the driest in history with 55% less rainfall than usual. This factor, along with the slightly accumulated drought of the previous year caused the grapevines to react intelligently and naturally adapt to expectations. Thus deciding not to grow the seeds of the grapes to ensure that they ripen impeccably. As for the temperatures, autumn and winter were extremely warm with an average temperature of two degrees higher than normal. The rest of the year, temperatures were slightly above average around 1 ° C and without radically elevated records. In August, the minimum temperatures dropped and helped correct the maturation of the small seeds.
