Spring began with very mild, even unusually warm temperatures and a rainfall deficit in April and May. An exceptionally sunny June provided perfect conditions for flowering, followed by 60 mm of rain in the middle of the month. The weather remained nice until the longed for rainfalls (without strong thunderstorms) in the middle of August. The vineyards were enjoying perfect health and despite of some rainfalls early September, the grapes ripened under best conditions.
Picking of white grapes began on September 15th, the reds followed on September 24th. Crops were still healthy with moderate sugar contents (13.5% vol. on an average) and gave us balanced and mineral wines, full of promises. A vintage with great potential.
