Wine Concept

An annual challenge for the winemakers to find two grape varieties from that harvest which, combined, show a well balanced wine with distinctive character and flavour.

Agriculture

A dry winter followed by above average temperatures in spring and summer, gave rise to an early start to the harvest. Although temperatures continued to be high, there was no extreme heat during the vintage, and the dry conditions were excellent for fruit quality, produciong wines with intense, persistent, aromatic fruit.
