Winter and spring rainfall was above average across South Australia, creating healthy soil moisture profiles for the growing season. Below average, cool conditions prevailed until October, delaying the commencement of the growing season. Canopy and crop management was a priority for the viticulture team and growers, who had to work hard to ensure quality met expectations.
Weather conditions in April for harvest were generally drier, favouring fully ripened grapes with well-developed colours and flavours.
The first vintage was in 2013.
