English term or phrase: lapse rate
...the wine's "lapse rate" is important for growth.

Descripción de cualidades del viñedo
Norma
gradiente térmico
Explanation:
English Term environmental lapse rate
Definition the rate of decrease of temperature with elevation.The environmental lapse rate is determined by the distribution of temperature in the vertical at a given time and place and should be carefully distinguished from the process lapse rate,which is applied to an individual air parcel
Reference Wildland fire management terminology,FAO 1986
Spanish Term gradiente termico vertical
(from EuroDicAutom)

Temperature is further influenced by the height of the vineyards themselves. Climatologically, the higher one goes up a mountain, the cooler it gets. The rule of thumb (called the "lapse rate") is that temperature drops, on average, about 3 degrees for every 1,000-foot rise in elevation. (http://thewinenews.com/octnov99/calera.html)

Allí, en la finca El Portillo, con un rango de altura entre 1050 y 1500 metros sobre el nivel del mar, se registra un marcado gradiente térmico que garantiza diferencias notables entre el día y la noche, característica muy importantes para optimizar la calidad, que luego se traslada a los vinos.
