Vintage Conditions

The rainfall for the growing season was lower than average but many growers managed this by consistent irrigations throughout the growing season. South Australia experienced 11 days over 35ºC during December and January with one of the hottest days on record. A cooler than average February allowed the vines to recover from the hotter than average December and January,  which allowed all varieties to achieve optimal flavour ripeness and intensity.
