This is a phenomenal pure merlot with blueberries, raspberries and hints of milk chocolate. Some nutmeg too. Full body with very fine yet chewy tannins and a long, intense finish. Reminds me of the amazing 1998. Best ever from here. Needs four or five years of bottle age to soften."

Galatrona is made entirely from pure Merlot grapes harvested around the middle of September. The yield per plant is notably restricted (max 2.0 lbs per vine plant) allowing a complete grape maturation to take place. This limited production permits the grapeskins to achieve highly concentrated levels of anthocyans and noble tannins, already sweetened due to the polymerization of the plant. The maceration on the skins lasts for 14 days. After the malolactic fermentation that takes place in French barrels of 225 liters, the wine is kept in new French oak barriques for 18 months.
