Viña Tondonia White Reserva 2004

Tondonia Reserva Blanco
Characteristics of the vintage:
It was considered by The Regulating Council as EXCELLENT. The absence of spring frost joined to the good environmental conditions that helped the fertilization fought against the difficult moments that we passed 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 the autumn was fresh and full of light and this weather allowed us to obtain very high quality grapes. The harvest took place very slowly and so that we could choose to pick the grapes in the perfect maturation moment. The Harvest started in Viña Tondonia on October the 11th.
