With the 2021 harvest completed and grapes safely tucked away in tanks, we let our winemakers do their thing and treat us with new vintage wine in a couple of months time 🥂
Vintage 2021 was a normal growing season compared to last year’s uncertainty, except for harvest commencing early and finishing right before the Easter long weekend. The team expected a lower producing year due to a combination of frosts and cool weather during flowering that has caused “hens and chicks” across most grape varieties. As a result of lower crops, we expect 2021 wines to have more flavour concentration, and be more textured on the palate.
Careful planning and meticulous attention in the vineyard kept our grapes growing to their full potential.
Overall, great sunshine hours, low disease pressure, light crops, and ripe fruit, all come together to produce some outstanding fruit and in turn some great wines.
