Overall, a warm and settled growing season, with little to no high winds, no major frost events and very good soil moisture leading into late 2021. Weekly rain events throughout November took the vines into premium conditions for canopy growth. Flowering conditions were perfect, with warm dry weather over this crucial period. In turn, the fruit was very even in ripeness within the bunches. Autumn was settled and warm, and harvest was very busy and fast-paced. A stellar vintage with very high-quality fruit and fantastic crop loads, which were easily ripened by our lush, large canopies.
