An unusually cool, late season with below average January temperatures contributing to a somewhat delayed start to harvest. Classic autumnal weather was perfect for ripening the reds. Yields were low, a benefit in a cooler, later season, and reds were picked in outstanding condition with developed flavour,
good density and fine, ripe tannins.
