Bud break occurred earlier than usually thanks to an exceptionally warm month of February followed by more wet weather creating perfect conditions for the canopy development.

September showed perfect conditions with warm days and unusual cold nights allowing the grapes to settle and extend the all-important hang time on the vine, producing remarkably clean fruit.
