Hot weather continued in August but it was coupled with very little rain. September started with very promising conditions for the development of Botrytis. However in the second half of the month and in October the rain was followed by warm nights and dead calm. A large proportion of the grapes we had hoped to develop into a good Aszú harvest were lost on the vine. Prior to this we were able to harvest good quality Aszú berries and these form part of the blend of this Late Harvest wine.
