Vineyard Notes
A mild December led to an extremely hot start to the year, with the following Summer months exceeding the 40-degrees on various days. This extreme heat meant the fruit continued a balanced and long ripening period. These conditions coupled with minimal rainfall created excellent picking conditions, allowing the harvesting of pristine fruit and with no mud under foot. Rainfall in late January allowed for some relief and a short cool change was welcomed to allow the vines to hydrate, followed by another spike in temperature with the long hot days continuing well into February. These hot and dry conditions have resulted in superb quality fruit and equally higher yields.
