Viña Tondonia Tinto Reserva 2008 Magnum


Product Notes

Characteristics of the vintage: This vintage was qualified as VERY GOOD by the DOC Rioja Board.

The wine growing campaign proceeded as usual except for the heavy rains that took place in June, which however didn’t really affect the grapes’ setting. After these fertilization and absence of spring frosts there was a dry and hot summer, free of cryptogamic/fungal diseases, that resulted in an abundant harvest. We observed certain maturation disparities which could have been solved along October due to its appropriate climate for a restful and selective harvest.

The collecting work began in Viña Gravonia in September 22nd and was extended until the 25th for the white varieties. For the red varieties the harvest restarted at Viña Tondonia in October 7th and didn’t stop until it was finished by October 24th.
