Harvest 2021

Friday, 23 April 2021
The one positive of lockdown and travel restrictions meant that we could spend more time in our vineyards. This equated to improving our yields and quality. There was a cool lead up to the vintage with lower temperatures in December, January and February allowing the grapes to ripen slower and more evenly. It was also a low sugar year i.e. proper ripeness occurred at lower sugar levels giving us beautifully balanced and elegant wines at lower alcohols.
