2016 Granbazan Rias Baixas Albarino Etiqueta Verde
From The Winery:
The 2015 harvest has been characterized by an almost total lack of rainfall in the summer. The winter was drier and colder in recent years, with average temperatures around 10 ° C and rainfall of 120 l./m2 between January and March. Budding came late, caused mainly by persistent cold temperatures. The lack of rainfall and moderate temperatures of spring contributed to the rate of fruit set was very high. Also, fattening grapes and vegetation growth were low, resulting in a higher ratio pulp - skin and a lower yield per hectare. The rains came in June, reducing plant stress and helping their development. Late summer was dry, and the harvest began in late September.
