About the wine:

Vintage report

A dry winter and spring had us worried it was going to be a tough year. record warmth came in October, which saw the vines leap out of the starting blocks and race to another very early harvest. Yields were all higher than in recent years, but even though a hot January was to follow, the vine canopies remained in perfect health, it was an exceptionally compressed harvest.
