Viña Cubillo Crianza 2009

Viña Cubillo
Characteristics of the vintage:
A year officially rated as VERY GOOD. The wine year passed normally, with the exception of the abundant precipitations that took place in June. However, it did not have a negative effect in the setting of the grapes. This good fertilization and absence of spring frost was followed by a dry and hot summer, free of cryptogamic/fungal diseases, which produced an abundant harvest although it was not possible to complete the entire production to which our vineyard booklet entitles us. Besides, some ripening inequalities were observed in this harvest, which could be corrected during October, which was very appropriate regarding the climatic aspect for the realization of a calm and selective harvest. The harvest started on September 22nd in «Viña Zaconia» and lasted until the 25th of the same month for the white varieties. For the red varieties, the harvest was resumed on October 7th in «Viña Tondonia», and the work was not stopped until its completion on October 24th. In the second week of December, after obtaining the timely authorization of the Rioja CRDOCa, a late harvest was made of almost the entire yield that was left pending in our vineyard booklet, after noting an interesting evolution of the few grapes during the autumn that had not reached their full maturity in October.
