ABOUT 2021 IN MARLBOROUGH
The 2021 vintage was one of the earliest and shortest ever. The growing season was the third in a series of drought years, with stress on the vines exacerbated by some serious storms. The combination of early frosts and poor flowering resulted in lower yields and smaller trusses than usual. This, combined with the dry conditions, has resulted in disease levels being incredibly low this year, resulting in better flavors and pristine fruit with good concentration, good tannins and good color but with serious low yields of up to 40% less than previous years. So in summary, 2021 is one of the most beautiful vintages with good concentration and intensity of taste but with a seriously low yield.
