Excellent harvest for the Contino Estate. Abundant, evenly spread rainfall between the budding and the flowering with a warm dry summer until August, which was cooler than normal. At the final stage of ripening the weather was much less sunny and cooler than normal, causing the process to slow considerably. Grape picking started on September 20 and was completed on October 12. The crop was perfectly healthy with very small-sized berries, producing great concentration in the wines. This was an inusual but excellent vintage for Tempranillo at our estate.
Grapes: Tempranillo (80%), Graciano (15%), Mazuelo (5%)
