The season started with good winter and early spring rainfall.
However exceptionally cold and windy conditions in late October and early November through flowering resulted in poor fruit set across the vineyard which had a significant impact on our yield.
Weather conditions through summer were warm and dry and we were grateful that the heat spike in late January didn’t have a significant impact on the vineyard.
Mild temperatures and lovely autumn weather throughout March ensured a steady ripening process across the vineyard which produced great quality chardonnay with excellent acidity and intense flavours and pinot noir with a great nose, intense colour and vibrant flavours.
The 2015 growing season was characterised by moderate temperatures and rainfall.
Thankfully this year we had a favourable flowering period with only intermittent rainfall in November and December which ensured good fruit set and an abundant vineyard.
The steady ripening season progressed well and our pristine fruit was harvested by the end of March and is characterised by strong, vibrant flavours which augers well for an excellent vintage of substance and complexity.
