"High Sands is our Grail. It captures the essence of our prized old vines. For us, High Sands means intense, brilliant, taut yet harmonious, serene, wholesome and complex."
2011 was one of the wettest and coolest ripening years of all time. This resulted in our yields being extremely low, especially as we carried out intense bunch selection at harvest. We are extremely proud of the wines from such a challenging year, the low yields allowed the fruit to ripen with the limited sunshine that we received, and we have produced wines that are lower in alcohol but still display great intensity and brightness.
