Release of the 2020 Serrat on July 22nd, 2021
2020 will be remembered for many things other than the fact that is was our smallest vintage in recent years. In fact our harvest was down by 70%. This was caused by a combination of factors, low bunch numbers, poor set at flowering and subsequently tiny bunches when we harvested. The only positive here is the quality of the wines.
The 2020 season was a difficult one, cool, wet and particularly windy spring led into a cool and cloudy summer that struggled to give us some heat. Patience was the key to harvesting the grapes at the right point, it took time for flavours to build and the balance in the fruit to be achieved. But we got there and the wines are full of character, personality and detail.
