A year with intense rainfall and mild temperatures until mid summer. Ideal weather conditions for grape maturation and harvest as well.
This year’s vintage allowed all of our early varieties to mature perfectly while in Xinomavro, the rainy September hit us for the third year in a row and as a result the vintage was a good one but not as great as expected.
An excellent year for all early varieties and rather good for Xinomavro. This year started with the best omens it could provide us. Until the end of August through mid-September we were preparing for an amazing year for Xinomavro. But persistent rain and low intensity hail in the middle of September halted the great maturation process of the grapes!
A very strange year with a very good phenolic maturity and a rather medium sugar concentration
