Cold and dry winter. In the spring, temperatures were somewhat higher, which brought forward the budding of the vines. There was a frost on the night of 27-28 April (down to -6ºC), which affected most of the vines and led to a significant drop in production and a certain loss of the vegetative cycle. Although there was sufficient rainfall in May, the drought increased, and ripening became more difficult in some plots at the end of the cycle.
The grapes were harvested in immaculate health, but the water stress caused the Tempranillo berries to have a smaller size and lower specific weight, ending the harvest with a 60% reduction in the average yield of the last decade.
The wines of the 2017 vintage. “Very good”.
Although depleted the berries are small and of great quality and reflect greater aromatic presence of fruit esters on the nose. These are wines of balanced acidity, with high quality tannin, and good balance on the palate. Wines which, although they could be destined for young wines, especially those with some oak ageing, will be mostly reserved for ageing.
