Harvest Note
The 2019 vintage was very healthy and quality should be high, a tricky flowering period and hot summer weather have conspired to lower the crop substantially compared to last year. Volumes may be down as much as 30 - 40% in some areas and affects both white and red crops. The year began with a fairly mild winter, and May was very wet. There was some frost in early April but damage was not too extensive overall. June also got off to a cool start which led to an uneven flowering with shatter being a factor in places. The rest of the year was “ideal” but there was next to no rain during the summer months which, on the one hand, has led to superbly concentrated grapes but, on the other, a drastic reduction in volumes.
Tasting Note
This plump, juicy wine has bright aromas and flavors of strawberry and black cherry. It is medium-bodied, with typically high acidity.
