Winter 2017/18 was very humid and wet, loading the soil with optimal water reserve. Spring started off, due to the persistent humidity, and helping the expansion of downy vine mildew. While the overall maturity was late in Spring, it prevented any frostbite while June started a long-lasting dry weather, and drought. The coastal winds brought salinity to a gorgeous sugar concentration. The harvests 2018 were done in the best conditions, thanks to the water reserve from the winter that sustained the plants, while the drought prevented any disease related problematic. A fantastic solar vintage, for collectors!
