2014 vintage conditions

The early part of the ripening season saw some hot spells followed by cooler than average temperatures and this caused some consternation. However in the latter part of the summer the weather stabilised and was consistently warm and dry. This allowed maximum flavour to develop in the grapes along with firm tannins and balancing acid levels.
