Cubillo crianza 2008
Year officially qualified as VERY GOOD. It is a year that passes without serious weather incidents, in the absence of frost during spring but marked by abundant rainfall at the same time and also after the harvest. A benign and drier summer favoured the setting and health of the grapes, which meant that the harvest was not very abundant but slightly higher than that of the previous harvest and of similar quality. The weather was exceptionally favourable throughout the final phase of the vegetative cycle, which is always decisive for the quality of the harvest. Our vineyard enjoyed the optimum conditions to ensure that the sanitary state of the fruit was practically perfect and that the ripening process evolved with balanced parameters of colour, acidity, alcohol content, etc., which has allowed us to obtain a harvest of high quality and slightly lower final volume than the previous ones. Grape harvesting work began on 6 October at’Viña Zaconia’ with the white grape varieties, on 9 October at’Viña Tondonia’ with the red varieties and ended on 30 October after harvesting’Viña Cubillas’ and’Viña Bosconia’.
