2022 was a very hot and dry year in the region. During dormancy (autumn-winter) higher temperatures and less rain than normal were registered. Water reserves were sufficient, however, through most of the growth cycle. Low rainfall levels in spring and summer helped to control vine disease. The ripening phase saw extremely high temperatures and low precipitation. So, the rain that fell September 4-7 and 12-15 helped finish off ripening and re-establish the fruit-acidity balance.
