2013 was cold, and full of delays. Temperatures well below the seasonal norm put a stop to growth until April 10th. Budbreak came around 10 days late; the cold, wet spring weather caused further delays in the cycle, and the vines eventually flowered a good two weeks later than usual. Then came a long period of drought – from 20th June until mid-September – along with some extremely high temperatures in July. The vines were able to draw on accumulated reserves of water in the soil and suffered little hydric stress. 

A few spells of rain in the second half of September helped to speed up the accumulation of sugars, while cool temperatures ensured a gradual decline in total acid content. Mild weather at the end of September re-booted the ripening process, concentrating sugars, lowering acidity and defining flavours. We began the harvest on the first days of October with good conditions
