Winemaker Comments
A dry lead up to the 2019 harvest through spring and over the 18/19 summer, resulted in lower crops and earlier ripening. Things really sped up with the heat during January. Wonderful ripe fruit characters and rich in flavour. A high quality vintage set up by a wet 2016/2017, average winter rain in 2017 and then drier than normal spring/summer of 2017 and 2018. Growers certainly made use of the various options for supplementary irrigation. Warm to hot weather through January, then warm days and cool nights into February set up perfect fruit.
Food Pairing
Lamb, veal and pasta dishes.
Production
