LATEST NEWS - AUTUMN
It's harvest time! We started picking on February 28 with the Almond Block Shiraz, followed by some Grenache for Rose the following week.
Things are looking good, with the cooler weather we've drifted into slowing the ripening, allowing time for flavour development and for harvesting the grapes at their peak. If the weather holds, wine quality should be high.
Some of our blocks have very small crops unfortunately but then a couple have average or better. On the McLaren Vale Grenache vineyards for example, the Winery Block is carrying quite a good crop but BJs is very small. The Langhorne Creek Shiraz is also very small but then the Cabernet is quite good. Talking to others it seems most people are down on yield so we're lucky with what we've got.
It's a busy period and important time for us now of picking, crushing and fermenting, with one eye always on the weather forecast.
With a bit of luck 2020 could be a small but good quality vintage.
With best wishes,
Drew and Rae.
We're sold out of wine at present.
The cellar doors will open again with the new releases on Saturday 14 November 2020.
