A settled and early summer resulted in an exceptional fruit set and clean growing conditions throughout the vineyard. This was followed with a persistent period of near drought conditions from mid-summer to autumn. Temperatures were in the normal range, but rainfall was very low with the island experiencing only a third of the year previous. These conditions allowed fruit to reach optimal ripeness. As a result, 2019 will be fondly recalled as a vintage that produced an abundance of high-quality wines.
