Penfolds vintage conditions - vineyard sun

Winter rainfall was close to average for most parts of the Adelaide Hills, resulting in full soil moisture profiles at the start of Spring. Temperatures remained cool in September while a warmer October encouraged strong canopy development. Warm conditions continued in November which were favourable for flowering, particularly in early varieties such as Pinot Noir, which consequently had a very good set. Weather conditions were mild during summer and conditions during the ripening period were ideal with mild day time temperatures and cold nights helping flavour development while retaining natural acidity.
