VIntage 2019 shaped up to be a challenging one, with below-average yields, however the quality was very high, with beautiful expressions of varietal character and generally good balance and structure. A dry Winter, Spring and Summer with warmer than average temperatures in January and February led to the advancement of maturity of all grapes varieties in the Eden Valley and an early onset of vintage.
