harvest note

The 2016 growing season kicked-off with a winter that was not too cold. As a result of milder temperatures, flowering started about 20 days in advance. Springtime saw more of a balance in weather condiditions, and the vineyards received a good amount of rain. During the summer period, diurnal swings were normal, with warm, dry and breezy days, followed by cooling night temperatures. Overall, the 2016 season brought meaningful ripeness to the grapes, while also preserving freshness and aromas in the final wines.

Pairs well with starters consisting of various types of canapés, first courses with game sauces and dishes featuring red as well as white meats.
