Description

"Recorded by The Regulating Council as VERY GOOD. We harvested 600.587 kilos. Due to the early spring frosts of April 11th and 14th the crop was considerably reduced. Viña Tondonia was more affected than Viña Bosconia but not on the white grapes. In June the vines showed excellent growth. Normal hot temperatures and low rain levels helped. September was relatively dry and sunny. The Rain in October delayed the start of the harvest but due to the low yields maturation was perfect as was the quality of the grapes. In general it was a dry year for the average of Rioja Alta: 500 litres/m2. We started harvesting the white grapes in October the 14th. The wine is evolving well and showing the ageing capability of all our white Tondonias." -Winery
