VINTAGE

Growing conditions: Unsettled spring conditions meant a slightly later bud burst and slow vine growth early in the season. Fortunately, things stabilised and warmed in time for flowering in mid-December. Late summer we had textbook Bannockburn diurnal shift (warm days, cool nights). A cool drawn out finish gave us a long, slow ripening period.
The result was a smaller vintage with excellent flavour intensity.

Grower Degree Days: 965 GDD

Rain mls: 225 mm for Oct-April growing
