Winemaker Notes:

"2012 proved to be a unique but outstanding vintage. This is not because of frost, heat or rain, but mainly due to bountiful harvest. The growing season was ideal with no frost, a mild spring, and a very temperate, long growing season. This allowed all varietals to ripen to their optimum condition with significant concentration and complexity. The biggest challenge was the management of the tannin structure of the very thick-skinned red vintage. This meant that winemakers who simply applied recipes had a challenging year as tannin levels were at twice the average level."
