Vintage Update 2015
Vintage update from Sandro, Glen and Marco
The 2014–2015 growing season started off with lower than average rainfall yet the dams and soil profile were full for the start of budburst. Due to our continued use of compost and natural foliar nutrition, the vines foliage appears a deeper green, which is a sign of increasing health and resilience. Yields are slightly below average due to cold conditions experienced during 2013 flowering period. There were several large falls of rain throughout the season, all of which were managed effectively and the vineyard remainded disease free.
The period between January and late March was relatively cool, with January much cooler than historically usual. With the exception of one rain event, the mild and still weather continued throughout the harvest period. This allowed for a calm yet constant harvest for the viticultural team. Harvest began in late February and was finished in late March. Ripeness was ideal with an attractive balance between flavour, sugar and acids. Even in the early stages the wines are showing great form, with strong lines and typical flavours. We look forward to seeing how the wines develop in barrel.
