The main feature of vintage 2009 was the anticipated start of the growing season in comparison with previous years.In terms of climate, the heavy rainfall that accumulated during the winter compensated for the heat and lack of rain in summer. Throughout the whole of September, climatic conditions were good, with little rainfall and an accentuated difference between day and night temperatures. This undoubtedly enabled the grapes
to reach maturity, determining excellent phenolic properties. The grape yields were normal and slightly lower than in past vintages. The wines achieved a good overall balance, with sugar concentrations within the norm. They are therefore expected to be extremely harmonious due to the levels of alcohol, acidity and polyphenolic components.
