Vintage details        The annual precipitation did not reach 350 mm, so nearly the same amount had to be irrigated. Due to the drought and the warmer than average year, harvest resulted in higher sugar levels, lower acidity, and smaller fruit size than usual, despite the trees having an average, age-appropriate load
