Viña Gravonia Crianza 2004

Viña Gravonia
Characteristics of the vintage:
Clasified by The Regulating Council as EXCELLENT. This year we were producing from 157 ha of the 170 own by us in our 4 vineyards. We harvested a total of 890.475 kg of grapes. The absence of spring frost joined to the good environmental conditions that helped the fertilisation fought against the difficult moments that we pass during the budding, delayed by the low temperatures during that period. All this weather conditions end up into a good and high yield harvest. The summer time was unstable with high risk of storms but Autumn was fresh and full of light and this weather allow us to obtain very high quality grapes and harvest slowly and so that we could choose to pick the grapes on the perfect maturation moment. The Harvest started on October the 4th in Viña Gravonia and finish on November the 5th.
