A mild winter was followed by an early spring with average precipitation and the odd hailstorm, mostly affecting the area around Siklós. This was followed by a dry, warm period which was especially kind to the blossom and resulting fruit. Summer was long and dry with a high aggregate of heat freshened by much midseason precipitation (100-150 mm). This resulted in some harvests being delayed, but even so the area yielded a generous harvest of grapes of extremely good quality. This year’s main challenges for wine-growers was scorching from the sun and the quick change in acid content. All in all we can speak of an excellent year.
