Growing Conditions

Late January 2021 registered high percentage of cloudiness, cooler temperatures and scattered showers which caused fears of a difficult harvest at first. Although rainfall was not large in volume, the extra humidity caused by clouds and lack of sunshine led to a harvest where the follow-up of each vineyard to ensure the right sanitary conditions were kept was critical. White grapes were picked one week earlier than average, leading to a very crisp acidity and a zesty tropical fruit aromatic.


All grapes were harvested manually and selected at the vineyard, transported in small 20kg cases to the winery and immediately crushed and pressed.
