  • Vintage Report

    • In general, the growing season began with a cold winter which saw some snow, which then moved to a tricky spring, bringing heavy rains, gnarly frosts, and fierce hailstorms, which significantly cut yields. Eventually, summer arrived and July brought a dry heat that accumulated in a serious heat wave in August, which ran through to September. The long sunny days helped push the grapes to phenolic ripeness and removed any threat of rot or disease
