This year, an exceptional climate meant winegrowers could let the different grape varieties ripen at their own pace and could stagger the harvests across their lands.
Wines with a high concentration of anthocyanins (the red pigments in grapes) and tannins that give them color, a velvety tannic structure, and harmonious character on the palate.
DRY WHITE WINES
These wines are full-bodied and fleshy. The Sauvignon, in particular, has a lovely complexity in the mouth, a sign of quality found in outstanding vintages.
SWEET WHITE WINES
Yields were low due to challenging harvest periods, but even the minute quantities led to outstanding results with well-structured wines.
