ageing : Enjoy this wine while it is young, but it can be cellared for up to 18 months from vintage.

in the vineyard : A cool, wet winter ensured even budding and replenished soil moisture. Cooler springtime temperatures resulted in reduced vigour and higher quality. This pace persisted through early summer, which was warm and dry followed by some rain later in the season, and contributed to a longer ripening period with low disease manifestation. Overall, the season delivered fruit with great structure, concentration and fl avor.
