Vintage 2020 - fast and fantastic

Vintage 2020, a little hectic, but we can’t complain. Two weeks earlier than last year, and no break in between varieties has set a fast-paced schedule. With the help of more than 60 international travellers, 80 tonnes of beautiful, hand-picked fruit have so far been delivered safely into the winery for processing. Our Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Verdelho and Shiraz crops are a little lighter than last year (possibly due to a rain event in late November) while our Riesling, Chardonnay and Cabernet vines are yielding just above average. Everything is looking and smelling amazing - check out the photos on page four and five of this newsletter. Tipping 2020 will be a delicious vintage!
