Mount Pleasant Chief Winemaker Adrian Sparks outlines the quality and elegance of the 2018 vintage…”2018 should be an absolute ripper of a vintage.”
Little rainfall and a warm winter resulted in early bud burst for the region. The region recorded lower than average rainfall throughout the growing season resulting in an early vintage. Fruit quality was high with no disease pressure. With crops being slightly lower than average, harvest was around 8 days earlier than normal, with pristine fruit showing great intensity.
