Serrat vintage 2023 Public Release

25 July 2024

The wines from the 2023 vintage follows on from the 22 and 21 vintage with a similar high quality set of wines. It is the third in a now quadruple set of La Nina’s, an unprecedented occurrence in our lifetime. 21, 22, 23, and 24 cool wet springs, difficult flowering, cool summers, later picking. The prediction was to switch back to a El Nino in 2024, but the conditions looked otherwise during this 23/24 season. It did dry out late though through February and March. Again, abnormal amounts of extra work in the vineyard, particularly in Spring, but the results are worth the effort. The 23 wines are as good as the 22’s in our humble opinion. Late picking with the cool summer and again very moderate crops, slim pickings out there.
