Specifications

Vintage Conditions

Constant warm days and nights through mid December, January and into February kept grapes developing faster than normal and crush started 3 weeks earlier than what we consider normal. The first few weeks were full on with many varieties ripening concurrently and demanding harvest. Some reds were harvested in fact prior to starting whites. After this time the onset of cooler nights brought maturation back to normal sequence and harvest followed. Harvesting commenced on the 12th February and the last of our fruit came in on the 20th March. This Shiraz was harvested early March.
