The spring sun shone during bud break and continued into flowering, followed by a dry summer interspersed with storms. Warm Indian summer with no rain lasted up to harvest and gave good concentration in the wines. Quantites were low, alcohol content was high.
Alcohol content at bottling:
Bouquet of spice, heady notes of pepper and vanilla, flavours that then come through on the palate. There is great finesse, freshness and length. Layers of complexity, full amplitude. Notes of roasted almond with a finale on cocoa.
