Winter typical with very cool temperatures, heavy rainfall, some frost. Mild weather in early spring. Warm dry summer, stable and mild leading up to harvest.
Harvest went very smoothly and the wines are looking exceptional. We believe that the 2015 vintage will be looked back upon as a very good growing season in southern Victoria, and many of our neighbours agree. However we think our vines look particularly fantastic, as can be seen in the health of the shoot growth, the thickness of the leaves and the balanced crop load. The resulting fruit quality has been outstanding, with perfect figures across all varieties. It is our firm belief that the efforts we put into our soil have made a real difference to the health of our vines, and we will keep pursuing this approach in our vineyard.
