in the vineyard : Cool temperate conditions during the growing season resulted in small, concentrated berries. Veraison was even, therefore ensuring ripening of grapes. The period was characterised by low disease incidence. During harvest, the cooler than average summer temperatures resulted in an excellent balance between sugar and acid. Lower yields deliver a well balanced wine that offers intense fruit flavours.
