- 2022: a year of relief for winemakers. The first buds came out earlier in March due to the mild weather, and thankfully the spring frost from April 9 and 10 did not cause any damage to the buds. Spring was hot and dry, making 2022 wines what we would call a premature vintage. By the end of June, the lack of rain started to be a concern. This was shortly followed by heavy rain showers, which despite some localised hail, generated just about enough water for the rest of the summer. The heatwave put the vines under strain but the drought was less damaging than in 2020, which allowed us to harvest grapes in perfect condition. Sunshine also comes through the 2022 red vintage, with more delicate flavours than the 2020 Pinot noirs. The wines were made with little wilting on the grapes and an optimal phenolic maturation process. The phenolic composites and aromas are subtle and delicate, nurturing elegant red wines.
