Growing Season

The season commenced around two weeks earlier than normal and we manged to navigate some extremely cold mornings in spring with minimal frost damage. The flowering period was wet and unseasonably large diurnal swings in temperature resulted in yield well down on average. The threat of sub tropical cyclones around harvest never eventuated with very dry conditions allowing fruit to be harvested at optimal maturity.


This was our earliest start to vintage ever beating the previous earliest by around a week.

A drawn out harvest spanning 41 days with the first pick on the 27th February and the last on the 8th of April

Chardonnay: 11th March to the 25th March
