Harvest Description

A cool winter allowed vines to go into proper dormancy. We experienced lots of rain, thunder storms and floods in August & November. Luckily this did not affect the sensitive flowering and ripening stages too much. The thunder storms and lots of rain resulted in good growth of the vines after budding. We had very little severe South Easter winds at the start of summer which resulted in very good budding & flowering of the vines as well as a record harvest. We experienced a fairly cool summer which resulted in slower ripening and the ability to harvest at lower sugar levels. With good canopy management and perfect harvest decisions we were able to bring the grapes into the cellar at the desired time. This resulted in refined wines with elegance and good natural acidity.

The harvest dates were March – April 2014.
