My thoughts on the 2018 harvest

A cooler growing season on the whole, with a couple of heat spikes, but they were earlier and seemed to have less impact.

The vineyards looked beautiful in early September – in fact they looked almost perfect. We had a rain event in September, and if you were lucky enough to hold on and wait it out, you were rewarded with a long, warm dry spell which allowed the clusters to hang on the vines and finish their ripening slowly.

This harvest was slightly different from ones in the recent past because there were no heat spikes during the harvest window, which allowed for healthy vines, healthy berries and an easier harvest overall. This was another excellent growing season and the wines will hopefully reflect that luck and beauty.
