Vintage Report 2006

2006

The 2006 vintage again showed the effect of drought. Winter rains filled dams and saturated the soils. Spring remained wet and cold, but temperatures rose towards the end of December. Warm to hot and dry weather prevailed after Christmas right up to picking. High temperatures early in the vintage resulted in early ripening and picking. Yields in 2006 were approximately 3 tonne to the acre.
An earlyish vintage with some very convincing wines made.
