Weather Conditions: Regular rain fall in spring and early summer promoted a vibrant and lush canopy.

A warm and dry February made for excellent ripening conditions but just a few days before harvest it was back to rain.

Fortunately we got a few more sunny days and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring the crop in safely just hours before cyclone Debbie hit the region – once again extremely lucky!
