NOTES ON THE YEAR
The Winter and Spring of 1997 were warm and dry. The higher than normal temperatures in February and March brought on early bud burst and the berry set for all the vineyards was very good.
From flowering up to September there were frequent rain showers which meant that the initial advance to the season was lost to a more gradual ripening period. The weather during the harvest was extremely hot and extra effort was made to prolong the fermentations. Yields however were down by around 30%.
The high quality was evident in the wines from the start, with the intensity of the must, good integration of spirit and powerful attractive aromas.
