DORMANT INTERVAL [May-Aug]: Temperatures average; rainfall 14% below average. Slow start to budburst but shoots developed well.
BUDBURST INTERVAL [Sep-Nov]: Temperatures just below average; rainfall 25% below average. Cold front at flowering.
FLORAISON INTERVAL [Dec-Jan]: Temperatures average; rainfall very low, 46% below average, our driest floraison interval. Below average fruit set because of poor flowering, many small bunches.
VERAISON INTERVAL [Feb-Apr]: Temperatures slightly below average; rainfall average but a wet March, 78% above average. Harvest conditions cool, but fruit quality well worth the effort.

Budburst a little later than average as was flowering and veraison, harvest almost 2 weeks later than average (our equal second latest PN harvest with 2001). Hang time 8 days longer than average.

Wines are regarded as excellent. Langton’s rate it 8/Halliday 9.
