Exceptional vintage. The Spring was cold and wet. June, July and August warm and dry with considerable temperature range and rain falls at regular intervals. September was cold and dry. The harvest started on September 20th…!and was cold and dry. Grapes were healthy, with thick skins and rich in colour. The must resulted rich in sugar, extract and acidity, with a low Ph. Only grapes that come from the Estate vineyards are vinified. Uncork and pour out a bit of wine from the bottles at least 8 hours before serving.
