Growing Season 2012-13 Update

It has been a very busy growing season. We have had good spring rain, heaps of sunshine and moderate temperatures – fairly well perfect!

The Sauvignon Blanc is in –  we had a much larger crop this year and the quality of the juice was excellent, rich flavour and a good amount of acid to add crispness.

The Chardonnay is next and looks in great condition, the Shiraz looks like a bumper crop and the Cabernet Sauvignon is also looking like a better crop than last year. The usual problems of birds and rain are still a challenge. The nets are all on to stop the birds and rainfall has not been too high yet – fingers crossed for the next two months!

I have attached photos from this season so far …..
