Vintage 2020

Early vintage. As a result of high temperatures, the plants started their vegetative growth between 2 and 3 weeks earlier than usual. This advance of the cycle, together with the intense spring rains and the high temperatures, generated the “perfect storm” for the development of Mildew fungus. A dry summer sped up the ripening process, so the harvest started a week earlier than usual. Healthy grapes were high quality with lower yields.
