Viña Tondonia Rosé Gran Reserva 2008

Tondonia Rosado
Characteristics of the vintage:
A year officially rated as VERY GOOD. The year has passed without severe climatological incidents, in lack of spring frost; but denoted with abundant spring precipitations and after the harvest. However, a mild and drier summer helped the growth and health of the grapes; which led to a not very abundant, but lightly superior harvest than the previous one with similar quality. The weather conditions were exceptionally favourable during all the final phase of the vegetative cycle, something that is always decisive for the quality of the harvest. Our vineyard enjoyed the optimal conditions necessary to get a health state of the fruit almost perfect; and with balanced parameters of colour, acidity, degree of alcohol, etc. during the maturation. All of these characteristics let us get a high quality harvest with a little inferior final volume compared to previous years. The harvest started the 6th of October in «Viña Gravonia» with the white varieties, the 9th of October in «Viña Tondonia» with the red varieties; and finished the 30th of October after the harvest of «Viña Cubillo» and «Viña Bosconia».
