Spring weather was dry and warm and was followed by the hottest and driest summer ever recorded. We started picking the sparkling grapes on 08 March 2013 and by the 20th March we were already picking some Riesling and Pinot Gris. The Pinots were picked early to mid April. The white have a good acid structure, ripe fruit and lower alcohol. The reds show good tannins structure and fruit concentration.
