The 2017 harvest in the Sobreño vineyards was carried out gradually, over about 20 days, as the quality parameters were reached. The first vines to reach optimum maturity were all over seventy years old and were all in a splendid state of health. Frost did not affect them, and although this was a year of low rainfall, some rain in July and August helped ripen the grapes. Cool, dry nights resulted in complex fruits, with plenty of nuances and a good balance between pH and acidity. Altogether, the year is likely to be remembered for excellent balanced, elegant wines.
