Viña Tondonia Red Reserva 2005

Tondonia Reserva Tinto
Characteristics of the vintage:
Classified by The Regulating Council as EXCELLENT, as well as the previous year. This harvest was not only good in quality but in quantity both in our own vineyards and in the whole D.O. Rioja. From the 170 ha that we own, in 2005 we had 154 in production. The volume of the harvest in 2005 was slightly smaller than 2004, due to the pollination. The vegetative cycle was perfect with no problems during all year. The harvest started 10 days in advance from a normal year starting on September 24th with the White grapes and on September 27th with the red grapes in Viña Tondonia. We finished harvesting Viña Cubillo in October 22nd. We suffered a big storm on October the 12th that delayed the finalizing but didn’t damage the quality. The grapes entered the winery with a good concentration of color, balance of alcohol content and acidity and good color intensity. All of this made great wines with high vocation of ageing.
