We just received a quick harvest update from Bodegas Santalba, accompanied by a number of images:

I am happy to inform you that we have started to harvest today on a fresh and cloudy morning.  The grapes are in very good condition and there is good ripening, even though there were areas with severe draught.  The different tractors have arrived with grapes that show an alcohol potential of 12.9 to 14.1%.
