Temperatures during the autumn and winter were similar to previous years. Temperatures were mild in spring due to rainy weather which lasted up until mid-June, after which they rose with the arrival of a heat wave in the first week of August. So, all in all, a rainy year, dry until the end of February, but followed by a great deal of rain until the end of June, which then let up until the start of the harvest when 120 litres fell (the previous year we had 30 litres).
The vegetative growth and the number of grapes per shoot were normal and the size of the berries was small on the young varietals. The Macabeo and Tempranillo were affected by mildew. The wines show a lower alcohol content than in previous years but possess the qualities of exceptional freshness, softness and elegance.
