Production
The 2012 season started well and early Spring conditions were settled with a couple of chilly mornings, but no frost damage. Bud break was nearly on time, but June brought cooler weather with consistent, intermittent rainfall A warm and dry summer ensured ideal fruit development resulting in slightly reduced workloads in our vineyards. The continuation of mild, sunny autumn weather allowed the grapes to develop thick skins and gave rise to expectations of flavourful, extracted wines. Barrels produced: 103.
