Description:

Vintage Overview

Warm and dry growing conditions were fairly consistent throughout the season and extended through to mid-April which made ideal growing conditions and produced excellent canopy for the vines, yields were down around 10% due to smaller berry sizes, which also gave the fruit more power and intensity.

Overall a great vintage for us and the wines speak for themselves.
