VITICULTURE / HARVEST
The 2019 was heralded as a classic vintage. Spring rains ensured adequate water supplies to cope with a moderately hot summer with little precipitation. The first half of the year was cooler and drier than average, creating a slight delay in the growth cycle of the vines compared to previous years. In general, 2019 shows many similarities to the great vintages of the 1980s. Summer temperatures were at a constant high level, with no peaks or heavy rainfall. As the harvest approached, the grapes were blessed with good weather throughout September, with significant temperature swings at night. The result was, grapes with almost perfect phenolic ripeness
