2020 sets a new benchmark for tricky seasons. A wet, cold and windy spring introduced our growing season, these conditions continued through our key flowering and fruit set periods in October and December - impacting our potential yields for the season. Disturbed weather patterns continued right through January, and whilst the weather settled in February it was not its usual scorching self. We experienced cool periods through both veraison and ripening; delaying and then slowing down our harvest. Fruit condition was superb with no disease pressure, and the small berries were bursting with flavour. VINEYARD The grapes for this wine come from our Cromwell basin vineyards managed by our viticultural team.
