2015 Vintage

Following heavy rainfalls in the winter, the 2015 growing conditions were exceptional. Mild and consistent temperatures over the summer and a cool and dry autumn produced beautiful fruit, balanced yields and healthy canopies. The resulting wines have bright fruit, great balance and persistence. One of our very best vintages. Yields were well up on the previous vintage (4.7t/ha or 1.9t/acre compared to 1.9t/ha or 0.8 t/acre).
