Characteristics of the Vintage
2019: warm, dry winter and spring, growth was initially rapid but late frost twice on 14th April and 7th May, hail in June and July, and scorching episodes in June and July slowed everything down. A little rain around 15th August was beneficial and the bunches matured well. Low yield but high quality.
Total SO2: 30mg/L
Harvested on 17/09/2019
