This year provided us an interesting but very difficult season. It started very mild but arid in winter. There was no real frost and we were a bit worried about having too many infections in the vineyard but thanks for the good spraying in 2006 we could see developing very healthy vineyards.
Veraison was very early but because of the rainy September sugar hardly increased in this month for three weeks. Though we had expected early harvest in August we could not do it because of the above mentioned reason.
On the other hand this vintage was very good for dry and late harvest wines as well but selection was even more important than before.
Wines we have made so far are rich and having lovely balance out of this vintage
