LATEST NEWS - SUMMER
It's been a difficult summer for many.
The terrible bushfires have left an enormous path of destruction in many areas and our sympathy goes out to those affected. It's been heartening to see the response from the community in donating money and time to help those affected. Indi answered a call for volunteers to go to Kangaroo Island to help the animals affected there to be informed they've had 13,000 people apply!
The recovery is going to take some time.
We have not been directly impacted by the fires and we feel very very lucky for that.
Our vineyards have survived the hot days of December quite well, with only minor damage to some exposed bunches. However the berry size is quite small due to the hot, dry conditions so the crop has been reduced.
The season is running late with fruit development around 2 weeks behind normal but the weather has improved significantly from the start of February with some rain easing the moisture stress on the vines and milder temperatures perfect for ripening. With still 3-4 weeks until we start picking it's too early to say what will happen with the harvest but the prospect is there for a small but high quality vintage if the weather holds. We'll see what happens...
We're sold out of wine at present.
The cellar doors will open again with the new releases on Saturday 14 November 2020.
With very best wishes,
Drew and Rae.
