1912 Vintage

A superb classic Vintage, full-bodied with concentration and balance, almost all shippers declared.

Well cellared wines still show great balance and lovely soft fruit flavours.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

The winter was wet and stormy, with warm weather in April bringing on the vines.  May was intensely hot, but the summer was cooler from July onwards, though no rain fell till 1st September and again on the 17th.

Harvest began on the 18th September and continued in fine weather, which broke on 2 October with 3 days of rain, though most of the best grapes had already been harvested.


The wines were sound and stood a lot of work, were clean with good average sugar and considerable flavour but the yield a bit short.

Winemaker's Overview

This last shower (17 September) allowed the vintage to begin most favourably on the afternoon of the 18th. The grapes in all the fine vineyards were uniformly ripe and had all been gradually brought to this state of perfection.

The musts have plenty of flavour, body, firmness and colour and promise to become very fine wines. Veremos (We shall see).
