Viña Bosconia Red Reserva 2006

Viña Bosconia Reserva
Characterístics of the vintage:
2006 was rated as VERY GOOD by the DOC Rioja Board. In spite of a light frost in mid-April and a hailstorm in Viña Tonodnia in early July, the overall amount of grapes harvested was slightly higher than in 2005. Just like in 2005, the budding took place earlier than usual, and this advance remained during the rest of the vegetative cycle. Harvest of the white grapes started on September 25th in Viña Gravonia. Regarding the red grapes, it started in Viña Tondonia on October 2nd. No major issues were recorded during the harvest, aside from some light, yet persistent rainfall, that did not have any negative impact on the quality, which was very good in our vineyards thanks to the excellent sanitary state in which the grapes entered our cellar. The grapes were very healthy, with an average alcohol content of 12,8%, very balanced and with a good concentration of coloring material, what is essential to make wines with a vocation for ageing, which is the signature of our house.
