2012 will be remembered as a very cool year. However, it started in ordinary fashion with a fine Spring and even flowering and fruit-set. There was some rain at Christmas, though not enough to cause trouble, but temperatures never really lifted and the sun rarely showed her face. Consequently, the ripening was slow and harvest late with low yields. The cool nature of the vintage has produced some stunning Pinot Noir's and we are excited to release a limited selection of Magnums from the library cellar.
