The Chardonnay harvest started on 5 February 2015 with all three of our vineyards picked and brought in two days earlier than our traditional start date.
Our Sauvignon Blanc was harvested during the night starting 12 February 2015.
Conditions this year include a long dry spell with no rain recorded in January or February. A 40% reduction in traditional yields has made for concentrated flavours and light work. With an early spring break and untimely spring storms knocking most of the developing fruit flowers off the vine.
Reds are progressing nicely with cool evenings ensuring retention of natural acidity.
