VINTAGE CONDITIONS

A frost in Spring reduced crops and delayed the start of the season. Thankfully, a bright and warm summer followed, allowing the vines to catch up and produce a darker flavoured Pinot Noir than what we typically see from our Waipara vineyards. Calm weather in Autumn provided great harvest conditions.
