Weather Conditions: Spring and early summer were hot and extremely dry. Much needed rain came in December and January promoting a vibrant and healthy canopy.

After a warm summer we received more rain just a few days before harvest. Luckily the fine weather returned and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring our crop in safely and in good
condition.
