Markus Molitor rates his 2015 vintage quite high but admits that the growing season was not all plain sailing: “The summer proved rather hot , and hummus management was important to retain as much water as possible. Rain came in September and brought some fear of a repeat of the difficult harvest conditions in 2014 and 2013. But fortunately this was not to be. At the right time, the weather abruptly turned for the better and we were able to enjoy a dream of a harvest, with all the time needed to make the right selections. We harvested for a full six weeks, from the end of September right until November 10. With hindsight, the rain of September actually proved a god-sent gift as it allowed the grapes to continue their physiological ripening process well into October. As a result, we brought in a stunning vintage which I compare with a slightly riper version of 1990 at my Estate.”
