2012 Compendium

2012 Compendium

The 2012 season started well and early Spring conditions were settled with a couple of chilly mornings, but no frost damage. Bud break was nearly on time, but June brought cooler weather with consistent, intermittent rainfall – nearly half of the normal annual precipitation. A warm and dry summer ensured ideal fruit development.  The continuation of mild, sunny autumn weather allowed the grapes to develop thick skins and gave rise to expectations of flavourful, extracted wines.

Tasting Notes
The 2012 is distinctive, with black currant and Italian plum aromas and flavours up front, but also displays blackberry, with wild herb and star anise notes. Elegant and concentrated, this wine presents a core of fruit accented by youthful tannins that will soften in the short term.
