2019 Vintage Report

Provence, the 2018 bushfires left everyone edgy about the 2019 vintage. We planned to make a small increase in production to help ease the loss of 2018. As it transpired, late 2018 and early 2019 were dominated by warm dry days, edging towards drought.
Having not irrigated for the past three years, we were keen to avoid compromising the fruit quality as a result. We pushed through, rain came in late January on the day we had decided we would need to irrigate.
The autumn moved steadily to cool dry nights and what could only be described as the best growing season, in 20 years of making wine in Orange. Small berries with intense flavour, bright acid and lignified dry stalks, combined to make the almost perfect vintageā€¦. Wow
