Our 2019 harvest is now complete, and we are happy to announce that it is yet another vintage of record quantity.
Conditions throughout the growing season were generally good, in particular during flowering in June and the critical ripening months of July and August. Despite less favourable weather conditions towards the end of the year, we have been able to pick a healthy and ripe crop.
In accordance with our strict and self-imposed detail-focussed techniques in the vineyard, we began choosing the best quality fruit during our green harvest towards the latter part of the growing season. This was followed by rigorously selecting only the finest fruit from each vine during harvest and ultimately ensured that all of the grapes which were chosen for pressing were suitably rich, ripe and pure. Desired levels of natural sugar and acidity were present across all three of the varieties that we grow – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
