◊ 2012 Winter was long and cold; spring and early summer were very wet and there were severe attacks of mildew. However, a superb end to the growing season gave us a small crop of remarkable quality.
The grapes were picked on 30th September 2012, 11°1 alc., 8,1 gr/l acidity
◊ 2013. The winter was very cold and snowy, with spring and early summer staying cold and very damp, causing coulure and millerandage as well as delaying the ﬂowering. However, August and September were warmer and drier giving us a late but excellent harvest.
The grapes were picked on 8th October 2013, 10°9 alc., 8,9 gr/l acidity
