The Rioja Regulating Body. The 16th of April surprised us with a strong early frost, followed by a more gentle one two days later, which led to a 15% loss in fruit later on. Milder weather in May allowed the secondary buds of the vines to recover, and the remaining undamaged crop began to fulfil our expectations. By June the vineyard was at its normal stage of development. We harvested 400.000 kilos of red grapes in the Viña Tondonia vineyard, all of which were well-balanced and of a high quality. This wine is still very fruity, but will evolve and refine itself through further bottle ageing
