Vintage: It was a perfect growing season with little to no disease pressure, good winter rainfall and early season rains meant there was no real need for irrigation. A mild to warm summer with clear skies provided a consistent, balanced growing season for white varietals allowing fruit concentration to full develop while retaining great acidity. As summer drew to a close the long cool nights and mildly warm days allowed the reds to reach full phenolic ripeness while maintaining good levels of natural acidity and fruit concentration. The pick of the last few vintages which will provide wines with great depth, concentration and exceptional cellaring capacity.
