Having braved the unusual weather conditions, 2018 is a unique, early vintage – a vintage shaped by extraordinary extremes of weather, ranging from record levels of spring rainfall to summer heatwaves. September’s fine weather helped to maintain the quality potential of the harvest.
In conclusion, the 2018 vintage is set to be all about elegance.
