Vintage Report 2004

2004

Good winter and spring rains provided a normal start to the season. Notwithstanding a couple of light frosts, there was good rain and kind, relatively weather up until New Year. After this it became very dry for the rest of summer, with a couple of brief, hot bursts. Picking was about the normal time and the grapes were beautifully mature, without being over-ripe. The wines have tremendous flavours and balance.
