The 2014 Winter was cut a little short with temperatures rising quickly in August, the growing season remained warm and dry bringing the harvest dates slightly forward. Moderate to cool conditions during ripening resulted in wines with excellent preserved aromatics and flavours. Exceptional white and red wines from this vintage, true greats.
