2018 Vintage News
Posted:19 September 2018

After the frantic activity of the week before last, when all the Sauvignon ripened at once, there’s been a strange calm over the vineyards as we wait for the all important balance to form in the grapes.

Next will be Sémillon and the last of the reds for the Rosé (possibly on Monday next), and then we wait again for the ripening of the Merlot and the Cabernet. All is good, as so far as the waiting is being done under clear skies and with the perfect weather, but for the perfect wine we need the red skins to ripen before the sugar levels get too high.

We’ll be biting on those lovely grapes daily until the perfect moment arrives.
