With unseasonably warm weather throughout winter and spring, it is no surprise to see our vineyard three weeks ahead of schedule. To date, it is the most advanced growth we have seen for this time of year. With most varieties flowering or through flowering and well into fruit set, it has had our vineyard team scrambling to keep up. Both 2019 and 2020 were exceptionally hot dry years, allowing us to craft grapes with rich bold flavours unpressured by any adverse weather patterns. With the season continuing warm and dry, it looks like we are off to a glorious start.
