2020 VINTAGE: EXCELLENT
The plenary of the D.O. Rueda Regulatory Council has ratified the classification of the 2020 harvest as EXCELLENT, after studying the report from CRDO Rueda Technical Services and the results from the Tasting Committee, which has been analysing wines from the new vintage since last October. Thus, the 2020 harvest becomes the third in the history of the Designation of Origin Rueda to obtain this classification, which vouches for its great quality. Its predecessors were the 2011 and 2017 campaigns.
According to reports from the D.O. Rueda Regulatory Council Technical Services, the 2020 harvest benefited from climatological conditions that, in principle, seemed to be adverse. It was the rainiest campaign in recent years, which caused some attacks of powdery mildew. But far from being a problem, these circumstances resulted in wines with superior character and complexity to those from previous campaigns.
