Vintage 2021: A very special year, marked from beginning to end by a late bud break, followed by moderate but always active growth during the spring, favoured by scarce and timely rainfall in April and May; a flowering period suitable for a good fruit set.
Later, the considerable increase in temperature led to an acceleration of ripening.
As a result, the size of the shoots was between 80 and 110 cm, ideal to nourish the grapes in a balanced way, which, with good fertility, gave an average of 1.12 grapes per shoot. Field work has been adapted to the conditions of the year, green pruning has been gentle, protecting the grapes from damage due to successive heat waves.
Very shallow ploughing of the soil to maintain maximum moisture available to the plants. Although the ripening process was advanced, we can say that fortunately, having followed it with great constancy allowed us to harvest the grapes on time with outstanding freshness and acidity.
The flowering period was also respectful with good fruit set.
