2012 was challenging vintage with frost hitting in April, followed by hailstorms and one of the hottest summers on record, reducing crops in some villages by as much as 40%. Ultimately, the frost and hail that reduced the crop earlier in the year meant the harvested grapes showed healthy concentration with  good levels of acidity balanced by ripe sugar content.
