||The climate in 2013 was favourable at the Remole estate. Spring arrived in April, after average temperatures and abundant rainfall in March. Rising temperatures led to an anticipated bud break. In May the recorded rainfall was above average and this allowed us excellent water reserves for the summer season. In June, the vines consumed more water to tackle the high winds and the onset of flowering, which occurred during the first two weeks of June. The temperatures during July and August were very similar and stable, with peaks of heat in the last week of July and the first week of August. The rains during these two months kept the vines from suffering water stress since the water reserves in the soil never dropped below the wilting point. The month of September was characterized by an alternation of favourable temperatures between day and night that led to the concentration of aromas and maintenance of good overall acidity. The growing season of 2013 was marked by a series of rainfall events and constant cool temperatures, which helped development at our vineyards albeit delaying vegetative phenological phases by about 10 days. Despite that, the particularly favourable climate in September led to a consistent maturation that gave us healthy, exceptional grapes for vinification.
