An exceptionally warm, dry spring, led onto one of our hottest summers on record. Near perfect conditions during the early flowering meant good fruit set, with larger tightly packed bunches. The continuous summer heat, coupled with uncharacteristic warmer nights meant acid levels dropped and fruit matured rapidly - bringing the whole season forward. Our harvest was the earliest on record, beginning on 9th of March, some three weeks ahead of the season prior.
