300 hours of sunshine in September and October looking like summer …. Rain totalling 11 mm in September and few showers in October .… This vintage was blessed with exceptional weather and lovely ripe grapes. In these conditions, we were able to take charge again ….. and set a date to harvest each and every plot (27 Sept to 15 Oct). We are really confident that 2014 will be a top quality vintage.
