Viña Tondonia Red Reserva 2007

Tondonia Reserva Tinto
Characteristics of the vintage:
2007 was rated officially as VERY GOOD. The year passed without important climatological incidents, without spring frost and with just one hailstorm in June that did not caused damages in the vineyards. However, the important rainfall that we suffered during the first semester affected the fecundation in spring, causing a deficient grape setting consequently reducing the yield of the harvest in comparison to a normal vintage in our vineyards. The harvest started the 2nd of October with the white varieties and the 4th of October with the red ones and finished the 23rd of October. The fresh and dry weather during harvest assured us the health and excellent quality till the stage that 2007 became one of this exceptional vintages on which we decided to make Gran reserve wines.
