The weather in Rioja during the 2021 growing season was erratic. The summer began dry but then rain in September became key for a more favourable evolution in the vineyard. In the higher, breezier vineyards as well as those of low and mid yields the grapes improved significantly with this rainfall. The weather in October was perfect, with bright, sunny days and very cold nights, which lead to slow ripening. The grapes were healthy, well balanced and generally had good acidity, so enabling us to produce good wines. Harvest of white grape began on the 21st September and ended on the 19th October.
