The timing of budburst was like previous years however the early part of the season was notable for lower sunshine hours, especially in November. January and February were extremely hot and dry, withering the surrounding hills and putting pressure on irrigation systems. This also brought forward the harvest by 10-14 days. Warm, dry conditions over harvest meant the grapes could be picked with optimum flavour and without pressure from disease or rain. It was a dream harvest.
