The Luis Felipe Edwards Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is a vintage wine. A vintage is highly dependant on the weather during the particular year as the grapes need to be harvested at the right time to get the right amount of acidity in the wine. In 2019, the entire growing season had either a lack of rain or temperatures were higher than normal during the spring to summer season. Drought was also a problem during 2019.
Not to worry, the surviving fruit was still generally concentrated and intense as cool nights helped to preserve the acidity and character of the grapes. Although the final crop was reduced somewhat due to bad weather, the harvest, though small, had a good balance of acidity. Therefore, the Luis Felipe Edwards Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 is expected to be very good.
