Vintage Notes

Good winter rains gave the vines plenty of reserves for the 2012 growing season. Spring was dry and mild encouraging even balanced growth. We shoot thin during the growing season to remove all unwanted shoots and to eliminate “crowding” of the bunches. Vintage commenced earlier than usual, which allowed us to harvest when sugars were lower and natural acids high. We can firmly state that the 2012 vintage will sit alongside the greats of the last 2 decades, 98, 02 and 04.
