Blanco 2022 2ºYear

VINEYARDS Only native varieties: 70% Viura, 25%, Tempranillo Blanco and 5% Garnacha Blanca and Malvasía, from vineyards located around Haro (limestone soils) and the Alto Najerilla (clay-ferrous soils). Generally old bush vines located in the highest areas.
HARVEST: The grapes were handpicked in 200 kg crates and hand sorted at the winery.
WINEMAKING: Light pressing, without needing to work in an inert atmosphere, some work in the open, and about 50% of stems in the pressing. The objective being a more Burgundian style that highlights the qualities of the land, over the varietal expression. Minimum contribution of SO2, spontaneous fermentation. All alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel at a constant temperature of 16ºC. Then, a part of the volume spends five months in French oak (not roasted, steam bending) with its lees, and the remaining volume is also aged with its lees in a concrete tank.
SOIL: Suelo pedregoso, aluvial, compuesto por un manto de canto rodado en superficie con horizonte calizo en profundidad (básico). Ligera pendiente.

Following heavy rains in November and early December 2021, we started 2022 with an almost total absence of precipitation during January and February. Later, we saw some humidity during the first few weeks of Spring, with temperatures milder than average. However, in mid-April we were given a preview of the heatwave that would come in late Spring. In May, average temperatures were above 25ºC (77ºF), and even occasionally topped 30º C (86ºF). This resulted in an uneven vegetative growth among the vines. The arrival of June brought a 20ºC drop in temperature in a matter of two days before beginning to rise again sharply, ushering in a very warm July and August with no rainfall. September was atypical not because of the higher than average temperatures but due to the lack of the normal thermal oscillation at night. Minimum nighttime temperatures were close to 20ºC (68ºF), which is unusually high for that time of year. Finally, the harvest began with no rainfall, which helped produce small, concentrated grapes, resulting in a very good vintage.
