So far so good for the 2012 growing season. Slightly warmer than average with modest crop levels promises an eary harvest in March.

We must pray we avoid the devestating rains of Feb and March last year which made things so difficult.

Mild sunny calm days are what we need now. All those in viticulture are at the mercy of the weather but with a successful harvest in each of our 27 vintages we consider ourselves fortunate.

Our 2011 Sauvignon Blanc has been well received with glowing reviews and inclusion

by Tony Love in his Top 100 wines.


November 2011

This wine shows its cooler seasonal influenceswith a delicate style rather than the overt grassy-plus-passion fruit and tropical power lift in many imported versions. Here we’re more about crunchy pear aromas, lemon sherbet flavour, great balance and a beautifully dry finish. More please.
