Vineyard Notes
Vintage 2018 arrived early after an early budburst in Spring. A long, dry season resulted in virtually no disease pressure throughout the region. Winemakers were able to make picking decisions purely on when grapes displayed perfect ripeness. Cool nights allowed beautiful acid retention and concentrated varietal flavours.
