The 2022 farm year was a very hot and dry year in the region. During dormancy (October – Winter) higher than average temperatures for the period were reported with less rainfall than normal for the region. However, the water reserves were sufficient for practically the entire cycle.  In spring and summer, the low rainfall helped in vine disease control. In the ripening period, temperatures were very high and rainfall, low. As a result, the rains that fell between 4 and 7 and 12 and 15 September helped to finish ripening, creating a good balance between fruitiness and acidity.
