WHITE TEMPRANILLO INITIATING THE 2022 HARVEST
We start the harvest at Viñedos de Aldeanueva S.Coop. ( Aldeanueva de Ebro cooperative) very early in the daybreak of today Wednsday the 10th of August with the variety of White Tempranillo. Night harvest that will start with the reception of the grapes in our winery at 6 am and being expected to finish by 10 am
These grapes will be elaborated in our winery Fincas de Azabache, dedicated to the elaboration of premium wines.
They will be harvested the plots chosen by our Technical Dep because they have reached the 12º, ideal graduation for these white grapes with the aim of obtaining wines with the mayor concentration of fruit and freshness possible.
This 2022, in Aldeanueva de Ebro, has been characterised for being very dry along the vegetative cycle so the sanitary problems have been almost negligible, being needed less interventions by our vine-growers. The lack of water has caused a minor crop expectations with less quantity and smaller clusters, but of great quality.
The harvest will begin this year 15 days earlier than the past campaign with the White Tempranillo, which is a type of grape with a shorter vegetative cycle and with a earlier maturity stage.
The rest of white varieties that we have in our winery, such as Verdejo or Viura, will need a few more days to reach their optimum ripening point.
We are finding, in this moment, very healthy grapes at the vineyards, with a lower crop yield in quantity.
