Wine Profile

Vintage
Other Notes
Lower than average rainfall and relatively standard temperatures over winter and cooler temperatures over spring led to late budburst and flowering (our latest on record). A mild start to the summer delayed fruit set followed by mild conditions over autumn providing slower ripening and resulting in a later start to the vintage (2 weeks later than average). Yields were significantly reduced but those grapes that were picked were of good quality – great natural acidity and lovely flavours in our Chardonnay with the Pinot Noir benefitting from the long cool ripening.
