Mas de la Rosa, DOQ Priorat – 2016
In climatic terms, the year saw a dry winter, a rainy early spring, and very little rain in late spring and summer. Summer temperatures were not excessively high, which allowed for gradual ripening. There was a slight delay in maturation in late August, but very high temperatures during the first week of September accelerated sugar concentration.
