Long before any of the major houses even release a vintage, expectations are running high. Orford-Williams describes it as “exciting and potentially better than anything since 2002”.

Bookended by bright, dry conditions in spring and September, the middle of the growing season saw cool conditions prevail to produce a high quality crop with plenty of acidity.

Expect hype to reach fever pitch as the big names begin launching in a few years time – but hopefully the best wines will be able to live up to it.
