Vintage conditions

2018 Vintage

Above-average rainfall offered the grapevines across South Australia healthy soil moisture profiles in the lead up to the growing season. Spring was quite cool, conditions that initially slowed down vine growth. Temperatures gradually warmed in October with vines producing large canopies, little irrigation was required. It was a season that challenged grape growers, who had to work hard to control vigor and crop size. Vintage was delayed by up to a month in some regions. Weather conditions during harvest were generally dry favoring fully ripened grapes with well-developed colors and flavors.
