Late summer with warm and dry weather brings the promise of a magnificent harvest

As the 2019 growing season enters its final weeks, we are very pleased with the progress of our vines and all indications are pointing to a fruitful vintage. The past few months have brought a long spell of dry and warm weather without extreme heat, chasing away any threat of disease and setting the scene for even ripening and veraison. Netting commenced in mid-January of the younger MV6 pinot noir vines and now all vines are entering the final ripening phase under nets.  The team are busy fine tuning in anticipation of a magnificent harvest kicking off in the coming weeks.
