Specifications

Vintage Conditions

The 2017-2018 growing season was a contrast to the 2016-2017 growing season. Reduced soil moisture led to reduced yields but provided periods of mild vine stress and high quality fruit. At Paulett Wines we do not irrigate the vines and their root structure had developed to withstand irregular rainfall, heat waves and drought conditions superior to irrigated vineyards.
