Vintage Report

Bordeaux / 1993 was a poor year, much like 1992. Starting worryingly dry and ending frustratingly wet. Cabernet Sauvignon faced again a challenge to reach bearable ripeness while Merlot was succeeding surprisingly well. Again the technology and selectiveness were the key issues for the quality. Top producers could still manage good wines at reasonable prices, such as Haut-Brion, Valandraud and Pétrus. Lafleur and Trotanoy have also been solid purchases. Of these two, Trotanoy is better available and a lot cheaper.

Vintage Report

Napa valley: An uneventful, warm spring concluded with unexpected rain during the bloom period in May, resulting in lower berry set and ultimate crop reduction of 20% to 30% at harvest. Cool growing season temperatures were broken with intermittent heat spells in August and September, resulting in several selective harvests, rather than one extended crush. Grape quality was excellent, with intense flavors off the vine, although some varieties experienced sunburn and required selective picking at harvest.

Australia / Barossa: The wettest growing season for more than 50 years with rains persisting from spring right through to January. The weather caused severe downy mildew problems and this was compounded by big, shaded canopies. Fortunately March and April were warm and dry which allowed sound, ripe, good quality grapes to be harvested although some regions were very late, with Kalimna recording its latest vintage on record. Overall the vintage produced high quality wines.
