Remelluri 2013 Harvest
This was complicated, wet, and cold year overall, with the vegetative cycle well behind normal schedule. The onset of ripening happened only on August 20th. Constant vigilance was necessary to ward off problems associated all the rain.
With a lot of precision work in the vineyards, however, and with extreme grape selection, Remelluri was able to extract quality juice this year, but it won’t be the vintage of the century.
Harvest started with the red grapes in the area of San Vincente on the 16th of October, with the last day planned for November 1st. Harvest of the white grapes occurred between October 20th and October 28th. The harvest this year was late, and we’re seeing a slightly higher acidity than normal.
