Vintage 2017 Begins!
An extremely late start to vintage 2017, mostly due to cool temperatures and seasonal rain.
On a brighter note however, cooler vintages allow white fruit to retain wonderful delicacy, freshness and refined acidity. This has been seen in the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, both looking full of flavour, punchy and focussed as we move on to Semillon harvest.
Next week we will harvest Tempranillo for the rosè, and reds are about two weeks away. Winemakers are very excited!
