Season: The vintage began with well below-average winter rainfall, followed by a warm and dry spring which enhanced flowering and set to deliver average to above-average yield potential. Low disease pressure was maintained by one of the hottest Decembers on record, when temperatures cooled down and rainfall began in late January, verasion had arrived. The fruit matured with an earlier harvest as predicted. Open vine canopies allowed air flow to develop fruit structure and sugars. Overall characterised by average yields with very high quality.
