Making Techniques The season was characterised by a lower production than usual, around 15%-20% depending on the variety. It was a typical winter considering the average temperatures for this region and grapes got enough cold. Rainfall decreased dramatically, which made irrigation necessary earlier. In spring average temperatures were higher than the historical average ones. There was low rainfall, just like winter. Even though there was no frost, some nights had long periods of temperatures around zero degrees Celsius, which together with the strong Zonda wind (dry and hot) at the end of spring when vines were blooming, probably resulted in lower yields. In summer, maximum temperatures were higher than the average ones. Just like spring, summer had low rainfall. All this resulted in excellent sanitary conditions and a very short veraison period, which was a sign of a very uniform ripeness that eventually contributed to the harvest. At the end of the summer, average temperatures were as usual for the region and the minimum ones were a bit lower, which resulted in a more balanced ripeness, especially in red grapes.
