2015 Growing Season experienced so many sequential days of perfect grape growing weather and has been one of the earliest harvests on record. Plentiful winter rains in 2014 were vital for the 2015 harvest. Large canopies, moderate yields and ideal ripening conditions encouraged an earlier than usual harvest free of disease.
The early harvested wines from 2015 sustained great natural acidity, ripe tannins with bright fruit flavours and spice. Another season remarkable for delivering naturally balanced wines without testing alcohols nor over ripe flavours. A very good vintage with many wines likely to demonstrate great cellaring potential.
60% Grenache, 40% Mataro with each variety vinified separately. This process is to ensure each wine component is picked, vinified and matured using techniques tailored to the specific grape variety. The final blend for this wine is only assembled 3 weeks prior to bottling.
