WA - ROBERT PARKER
VivaltuS wines represent something completely new in our beloved Ribera del Duero: elegant, fresh and long-lived wines that showcast our terroirs.
The philosophy behind La fleur VivaltuS is to show a different profile of our terroir. Using the very same vineyards and parcels used in VivaltuS, we have managed to create a more accesible, direct and easier to understand wine, to be enjoyed by a wider audience. A different assemblage towards a different purpose.
The first winter months were dry and mild until February 2016 when the cold, frosts and snow arrived. Spring brought a good amount of rainfall with low temperatures, delaying vine sprouting until mid-April.
Summer was dry and cool, with wide thermal variation between day and night (from 35oC to 5oC in some plots) lowering PH, improving natural acidity and delaying ripening. Climate conditions in September and October were ideal and harvest began with perfect timing, on September 29th.
