Whole bunches pressed together to tank and fermented cool to retain freshness.
2022 delivered an almost perfect growing season, however, post veraison, the weather was rarely on our side with a significant lack of the sunshine. Humidity, bird pressure and limited spells of dry weather made it a tougher than usual vintage. The quality of the fruit of our whites was a bit mixed, with some fruit bearing scars from the hail we had in November. The ever-present disease pressure also forced our hand when it came to picking, but overall, we’re pleased the resulting quality of the wine. Our reds also struggled to ripen in the cool conditions, and so we delayed our picking – ultimately picking everything almost two weeks later that usual. What this means in the wines however, in addition to bright berry flavours, is spice – and plenty of it!
