The 2013 is a beautiful and elegant wine with good concentration and lovely fruit.  The tannins are ripe and the wine has a long aftertaste.

The 2012 winter blessed us with 880mm of rain.  The spring of 2012 was wet and cold and even the end of summer (February 2013) was relatively cool with good rain - 98mm.  We started harvesting Merlot on 5 March 2013 and the Cabernet Sauvignon on 20 March 2013.  The harvest of the Cabernet finished on 11 April.
