Not declared

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

A cold spring, with the budburst 2 to 3 weeks behind normal. Dry summer, and a small amount of rain mid September. Harvest started 29 September.

Vinification

Lagares stood a good deal of work, from two days and two and a half nights to three days and three and a half nights.

Winemaker's Overview

Had the fire lit and all pleased to sit around it. The 1st of June like Christmas, we lacked the plum pudding.

2 June 1913

Found 1st lagar still at 10º (baumé) after 3 days. Vintage quite unlike any we have ever seen. Three months drought rather spoilt the proper ripening of the grapes. ... Copious rain has fallen during the beginning and latter part of the gathering. But considerable quantity of good work was done during 4 fine days. We hope to see some tonels of good wine but owing to the peculiar conditions it is impossible to make sure even of that.
