The Year of 2015:
The 2014/2015 was an atypical year in terms of climate, with a cold and dry winter and a spring and summer which was abnormally hot and dry. What stands out in particular is the reduced rainfall throughout most of the growing season and high temperatures recorded between June and July. This impacted the vine and grape maturation.
