Vintage Report

 

 The 2016 vintage was early, about two weeks earlier than in 2015. It was dry and warm, bringing on even grape ripening and completely disease free. The wine-making went smoothly and the wines have come through well and are showing promising intensity of flavour. The reds have completed malolactic fermentation and are maturing in French oak barrels. The whites are in the final stages of preparation for bottling in late June. We will also bottle a Rioja-style Tempranillo for the first time.
