High rainfall and a cool vintage. Very good vintage structured and acid wines. A cool and extreme year, with a snowfall on March 9 that we will not forget. The season began with a very rainy October and a cool autumn that allowed us to keep the leaves for a long time. As a result, the vines were able to load their reserves well. The winter was long and cold. We started pruning on December 10. The spring was cool and rainy, and it was not until August that the heat arrived. On August 12, 30 liters of rain fell, which helped to replenish the soil’s water reserves. We began the harvest on August 18 and, fortunately, we had a month without rain so that practically all the grapes could be brought in. During the crop year (October 2009 to October 2010) we harvested 700 L of water and the average temperature was 14.4 °C (57 °F). Excellent vintage with great potential for aging.
