The 2019 vintage was a challenging one. Wind and frost hit the vineyards hard during flowering, affecting fruit set, while heatwaves and long dry spells were hallmarks of the ripening period. As a result, this vintage will long be remembered for its much lower than average yields. We faced each vinicultural test as it was presented and carefully managed each individual site as necessary to protect the grapes. is intense effort paid off, as the resulting fruit, although less of it, was superb with intense flavor and wonderful balance
"No rules, no boundaries and no hesitation. The freedom of the ocean is our ultimate inspiration." Just as the tides ebb and flow, everchanging and beautiful, hiding an ultimate beauty beneath their restless waves - winemakers too must continuously move and evolve, facing each challenge on the path to uncovering perfection. And like the changing tides, no wine is ever the same - each one its own tale of wonder.
