The lead up to the 2014 vintage was not without its challenges. After good winter rain and a dry spring, McLaren Vale felt the full force of two heatwaves in January & February. In fact, Adelaide had a record of 11 days of 42°C or more. On the 16th of January, 2014 Adelaide was officially the hottest city in the world. Around 45mm of rain within 48 hours followed the heat in February, slowing the ripening of the grapes right down. Thankfully, March brought with it mild conditions and cool nights ultimately producing an orderly vintage.
We commenced crushing on the 4th March – our 2nd lasted start to vintage ever, after 2011. This permitted a long, even ripening period allowing flavour time to develop in sync with sugar ripeness. NASAA Certified Organics
