Autumn in the vineyard 2013...
Autumn is a particularly busy time in the vineyard. We see the fruit develop colour and flavour, as we keep a watchful eye to the weather. A little rain will help to fill the grapes, and provide welcome growth to ground cover.
Our loyal team of local pickers comes together in good humour each vintage to chat as they pick, and to share a cup of tea at the end of the row.
Green-gold chardonnay grapes will be the first to come into the winery, luscious with echoes of summer fruits, followed by the rich ruby shiraz, spicy and fragrant, and the autumnal blackberry flavours of the cabernet.
And as the grape harvest draws to a close and the vines begin to enter dormancy, we welcome new life to the vineyard. The vines drop their brightly coloured leaves and the ewes produce the first lambs of the season in the shelter of the rows.
