Autumn 1995

These '94 wines are amongst the last of our wines from a vintage which has been described by many as fine, and which does appear to be living up to its promise with most varieties. Lower than average crop levels, a warmer than average summer, and an extended dry summer and autumn have yielded wines with colour intensity, high levels of tannins and phenolics, and powerful flavours. At harvest the fruit was clean and the pHs low, and the resulting wines appear to have good cellaring potential.
