The vine years
2002 wine year
The 2002 wine year was marked by winter and spring with little rain. Fortunately, in May the desired rains came, which replenished the soil’s water reserves. This enabled the young shoots to mature normally.
The dry June triggered a slowdown in the vegetation process. The ripening proceeded normally, despite the rainfalls that continued throughout the summer, which favored the development of Botrytis. We were able to counter the botrytis pressure in good time by thinning out to allow the grapes the greatest possible air supply. September was initially marked by abundant rainfall. This was followed by sunny days with large temperature fluctuations between day and night. The average yield was around 5500 kg / ha.
The grapes have a high sugar content and intense aromas. We are confident that we can also produce top wines with the 2002 vintage.
