A few days before the end of the 2022 harvest, at Son Vich we are very happy with the results obtained.
The weather this year has been characterised by low rainfall and high temperatures throughout the summer, much higher than usual in the Serra de Tramuntana. This has led to a decrease in yields and a greater concentration in the bunches. The bunches have been smaller, but with more sugar and colour. At the same time, the health of the grapes has been optimal, as fungal diseases have not found good conditions for their development. For all these reasons, this is a great vintage.
Wines with a lot of character and great quality
The harvesting period, which at Son Vich de Superna lasts almost a month and a half, allows us to harvest the grapes in a slow and reasoned manner. Harvesting by hand in 12 kg boxes allows us to select the most suitable bunches for our different types of wine. In the case of the Mantonegro variety, we harvest the same grapes three times. With them we make our ‘blanc de negres’ Marges, our rosé Llàgrima de Superna and our red Supernins.
The rains at the end of September are lurking, but in a couple of days we will have all the grapes in the winery, and we will finally have the chance to look at the sky with serenity.
