The 2013 vintage has been an excellent one – the best since 2005 according to Brian. The hot, sunny summer and long lingering autumn conditions have produced wonderful fruit. In all varieties, the fruit has been clean and ripe with excellent flavour development. The vibrant colour in the reds is truly exceptional. Watch out for some exciting wines from this vintage! The whites will be bottled and released later this year but for the reds, patience is required. They will need time to mature in fine French oak barrels for about twelve months prior to bottling.
