Spain 2019 harvest report region by region

Penedès – crush figures unavailable

Miguel Torres Mazzassek of Familia Torres described the 2019 harvest in Penedès – and other areas of Catalonia – as “excellent, although less fruitful than last year”. Regarding Penedès he said: “This year we achieved the optimal level of ripeness in all areas of the Penedès, unlike last year when there was some difficulty in the area of Alts d’Ancosa.

Throughout the region, the grapes were harvested in a good state of health but with a lower yield than last year. Varieties with a short cycle, such as Chardonnay and Moscatel de Frontignac, were harvested in their optimal state of ripeness, while medium-cycle varieties such as Xarel·lo and Merlot ripened more slowly, achieving good aromatic and skin ripeness. The late varieties, such as Parellada and Cabernet, ripened slowly with balance and good acidity”.
