STARTING THE HARVEST OF RIOJA WHITE VARIETIES
Ready for the imminent start of the 2017 harvest in La Rioja. With the high temperatures experienced during this summer, the white Rioja varieties have reached their optimum maturation state and therefore we are in the perfect moment for their harvesting.
The Fincas de Azabache Quality Department has been analysing white grapes of the White Tempranillo and Viura varieties from different plots to check their ripeness, freshness and acidity levels and the results shown very healthy grapes, with an alcohol content that reaches the 12 degrees in certain plots and with a very hight quality level and thus tomorrow Thursday 10th of August will officially begin the harvest in our locality, Aldeanueva de Ebro.
As regards the beginning of the harvest of the red varieties, we will still have to wait, probably between 10 and 15 days.
