Vintage

Spring was cool and led into a very dry September and a warm dry October. November mornings presented some frost conditions however the days became warm and stayed dry. Summer developed into another warm dry season with December and January continuing this theme. In February the rainfall was well below normal. Overall a great summer yielding small, flavour packed berries with great colour.
