2013 vintage: The 2013 vintage was characterized throughout its cycle by a particularly rainy spring, very appropriated after a very dry 2012, and followed by a very hot summer. The summer started with rather low temperatures and took some time to make its appearance, causing a rather cold ripening start that became later well balanced being also affected by the rains next to the harvest date. This weather required to lengthen the cycle to reach the complete ripening until the 14th October. From that date, the harvest has required 17 days of uninterrupted hand picking, characterized not only by the usual exhaustive selection on the grading table at the winery but also by an extreme selection in the vineyard that had guaranteed healthy grapes and an optimal ripening of the same as well as a good acidity and the typical well balance from other vintages at Pago de Carraovejas.
