A tricky season commencing with good early season growth. A cool and wet November impacted fruit set and resulted in reduced yields. Early summer was hot and dry, then February brought more cool, wet conditions. Our organic farming, however, had the vineyard in terrific shape to deal with the challenges and fruit was harvested with fruit purity and bright acidity.
