Waipara Valley Update - August 2012

Waipara Valley Update - August 2012

 

In spite of the coolest summer we have experienced in nearly 20 years in New Zealand, we have harvested some beautiful fruit due to the fantastic autumn. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris fruit looked and tasted particularly splendid.

It was a very condensed harvest for us not starting until after Easter and most of the picking concentrated over the last two weeks of April, first week of May. The last of the Riesling was not done until the 27 of May by which time we had already started the pruning.
