Weather Conditions: A warm and dry spring allowed an early flowering and good pollination. January was fairly cool with regular rain ensuring the vine canopy remained lush green and working at its best. Two months of Nelson sunshine ripened our grapes beautifully leading to one of our best harvests so far.
