Probably the warmest and driest vintage I have ever seen, in the 40 years I have been involved with the industry. Mother nature threw everything against us this year being hot winds, frost, and draught. As a result we had very low yields. Saying that we did the same as what we did in 2018, which was water early to build the canopies, picked early to minimize sun exposure, and crushed and drained in the winery. One thing we did different in 2019, was used ‘Surround’ on the vineyards. Surround acts like a sunscreen, protecting both the vine and berries. This protecting the berries from the sun, and maintaining the integrity of both the vine and the berry.
