2012 Vintage

Climatic conditions during the spring of 2011 resulted in good flowering and berry-set. The moderate temperatures during the ripening season lead to good aroma development.

viticulture

The use of trellised vineyards ensured sufficient sunlight and air circulation in the vine’s canopy, resulting in excellent ripening conditions and thus produced grapes with excellent flavour and intensity. Fungicides, pesticides and herbicides were kept to a minimum and weeds were controlled manually. Our own farm-made compost was used as fertiliser and the grapes were harvested manually into small lug boxes in the early mornings.
