Vintage Description

Even though bud break occurred at a relatively late stage this year, high temperatures and humidity helped precipitate flowering. As of mid-June, weather conditions were hot and dry, and the vines benefited from slight water stress, which led to optimal conclusion of their growth and ideal passage to maturation. Intensive rainfall shortly before the beginning of the harvest turned out to be beneficial for the grapes, as it allowed them to reach the final stage of maturity without drought stress.

Throughout the harvest period, the weather was sunny and dry, ideal conditions for perfect maturity and a harmonious development of grape aromas. Hence, each grape variety and every vineyard could be harvested at the best possible moment.

The results are white wines with elegant structure and delicate acidity. The red wines show great potential as well, with full body and powerful tannins.
