“Vintage started off a bit later than it has for the past several years but nowhere near where it was twenty years ago. Global warming has made a huge difference to harvest dates here in the cool Alpine Valleys. From starting in April in the 1990s to February 20 years on. Anyway this vintage started in March and the fruit of the early varieties was nothing short of exceptional. Then it rained! And then it rained again! That’s how it was for the remainder of the harvest. Diseases associated with the wet were not a problem in our vineyard as we had been very vigilant with our fungus preventative spray program. Eventually we got all the varieties in at close to the desired sugar levels, but I hasten to add the flavours were early and amazing. Summary – a good vintage, not exceptional. My pick for this year was the Sangiovese, the Shiraz, and the Riesling. Time will tell the true story.”
