Even with only two acres, we saw sufficient variation in flavour development in the 2009 The 1880, to justify hand picking in two parts, with almost 2 weeks separating the picking times.The April harvest followed a warm and moderate autumn which allowed all the elements of the old vines to come together beautifully. The cool Eden Valley region and the subsequent extended ripening season allows for the development of exceptional flavours, balanced acidity and lovely soft tannins.
