Vintage 2017 Report

The 2017 Season....

The 2017 season broke the mould a little, a vintage so different to all those of recent years. Spring 2016 was abundant with rain, and teamed with near perfect flowering conditions, the white varieties yielded higher than average crops in 2017. Unusually however, much cooler summer conditions meant the wines maintained a pure line of acidity, giving elegant white wine styles, and a much later start date to harvest.

The cooler conditions coupled with 100mm of rain in February and March caused much anxiety as to whether the red varieties would sufficiently ripen, however a long ”Indian summer” and only 3mm of rain since has given an exciting crop of reds…..intense, powerful and succulence are synonyms used with all red varieties from the vintage, and has the traits to be one of the best.
