The third vintage of UKAN was marked by a winter with high temperatures and a rainy early spring that boosted the vegetative growth of the vines. The summer started off moderately cold and wet, but then the temperatures and rainfall were normal for the summer season. A further drop in the thermometer in September resulted in a long ripening period, which, after the harvest, resulted in balanced musts with great aromatic intensity and freshness.
Ten oak vats were used for fermentation, four of which were destined for the production of undestemmed grapes. After spending sixteen months in barrels, the coupage of the vineyards was carried out in March 2022, resulting in a balanced and profound wine, with an infinite number of nuances and with a great future in the coming years.
The second vintage of UKAN began in the vineyard with a dry, cold winter that delayed bud break. The rainy spring was very favourable for the vines. After a cool and wet May, the heat arrived in June to stay for the whole summer, one of the hottest in recent years. However, the different heat waves were followed by light rainfall that prevented the vines from going into dormancy, resulting in a low-yielding harvest of excellent quality and health when it came time to harvest in October.
Ten 20-hl oak vats were used for fermentation, four of which were used to make the grapes without destemming. The wine was aged for sixteen months in 225-litre barrels and blended from the vineyards in June 2021, resulting in an elegant, complex and ripe wine that bears witness to a warm and dry 2019.
The first vintage of UKAN was marked by the rains that fell throughout the year, especially in September when the grapes were approaching optimum ripeness, delaying the harvest to October. After fermentation in oak vats and ageing for seventeen months in barrels, the blending of the vineyards was carried out in May 2020, resulting in an elegant and balanced wine that shows the freshness of the year in which it was born.
