Weather Conditions: An extremely dry spring lead to an early draught. Luckily we had irrigation available to support the flowering and ensure good pollination.

Summer brought good amounts of rain and warm temperatures, promoting vigorous canopy and grass growth. Unfortunately this weather pattern culminated in two large cyclones - Fehi and Gita - battering the region in February.

March was warm and dry, allowing the now fragile crop to ripen nicely. Once again we had an exceptional picking team who diligently selected the fruit and sent high quality grapes to the winery.
