A year that could have been very negatively marked in terms of quality by the intense heat wave that affected us from the end of May to the beginning of September, and that caused damage to vegetation, sometimes severe; The effects of which an exhausted vineyard was recovered at this point in the cultivation cycle, thanks to the very opportune rainfall in September, which finally facilitated an abundant harvest, and which stood out in all our vineyards as a whole for its good health and ripening levels which reached average values of over 12.5 degrees of sugar for the red varieties and very close to 13 in the case of the white varieties. Harvesting work lasted from 24 September to 23 October. The long duration of the harvest is due to the fact that we tried to slow it down in order to make the most of the rains in September and those that occurred during the harvest period. Our experience, together with the fact that our area is the highest in Rioja and that the average age of our vineyards is high, meant that our varieties did not suffer hydric stress and the wines have evolved with roundness and finesse and still have great storage capacity.
