Background

2013 was an exceptional vintage. Spring was mild with lower than average rainfall allowing for good fruit set and minimal disease pressure. Summer was long, warm and dry, with absolutely no rainfall from Christmas day till mid-April. This allowed the fruit to hang on the vine to full physiological ripeness, producing wines full of complexity, ripe tannins and power that will cellar well for many years to come.
