Gomez Cruzado Rioja Crianza 2017

Checking local availability

A mild winter with little rain. At the end of the summer, with total absence of rainfall, some vineyards began to show the first signs of water stress in the lighter soils. Areas such as the Upper Najerilla had more favorable conditions due to their high altitude and soil with good water retention capacity. It was a highly fertile year so thinning clusters was essential. Harvest took place during the last week of October. Given the wide thermal amplitude during the final days of maturation, the grapes had more anthocyanins and, therefore, a little more color than in previous years.
