This vintage was marked by the incidence of drought. Low rainfall figures starting in the winter marked the development of the entire growing cycle. Their vineyards in Haro benefited from the cooler climate and suffered the impact of the drought less severely than other areas. Marked water stress during the months prior to harvest led to lower yields than usual. The decision on the picking date was crucial in ensuring a quality Tempranillo in Alto de la Caseta vineyard. 2012 provided a wine of great structure and much fruit with a great potential for barrel ageing to finish smoothing out.
