VINTAGE CONDITIONS
Plentiful winter rainfall set the vines up well for the growing season in South Australia. Spring was relatively cool, conditions that initially slowed vine growth. Temperatures gradually warmed in October with vines producing large protective canopies. Very little by way of irrigation was required and our growers had to work hard to keep vigour and crop size in check. The prevailing conditions meant that vintage was delayed by up to a month in some regions. The weather during harvest was generally dry favouring fully ripened grapes with well-developed colours and flavours.

HISTORY
The first vintage was in 2013.
