    Vintage 2013 update

    Well we’ve picked all the whites, and they’re looking really good! One of the best crops we’ve ever had, actually. Small amounts, but great flavours – and as you know we’re all about quality over quantity! (We average 1 tonne to the acre, while your typical irrigation district vines will crop at 10-15 tonnes / acre.)

    We had 50ml of rain in the middle of it, but it hasn’t had much effect – which shows how dry it has been! The top Chardonnay did end up a little sweeter than we would have liked, but we will be able to blend it with some picked earlier to bring the alcohol down to around 13.4%, similar to previous years.

    And the flavours are delightful! It’s so good to have some good news after the last two years!
