Autumn was exceptionally dry. Spring reversed the trend with a significant accumulation of rain between April and June. The Summer months of 2018 were marked by sustained high temperatures yet with the water reserves accumulated during Spring, the vegetative cycle progressed without stress.  A light storm on August 10th brought a welcome rainfall and the ripening process completed without incident. The harvest was carried out under dry conditions and was finished before the late September rains arrived.
