A close-to-perfect growing season. Apart from a small storm in late October, spring was warm and dry, providing excellent conditions for flowering. One of the hottest Decembers on record sped fruit development along but was followed by a slightly milder January, perfect for ripening. No bird pressure made for a straightforward harvest with fruit in pristine condition.
