Interesting news from the cellar
At last the long awaited winter rains have started and the vineyards can eventually start shedding their leaves and cuddle up for a nice and lengthy, well deserved rest.
What has been a very up & down harvest and a strange start to autumn, with cooler temperatures and windy conditions during February and March and rain in April, the pattern seems to be normalising and hopefully this is the start to a traditional cold and wet winter. The cover crop that we sowed in-between the vineyard rows are slowly sticking out their necks above ground and a beautiful green sheen is covering the vineyards.

The 2013 Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc wines are being bottled at the moment and will be ready for enjoyment soon - watch out for these lovely exuberant fresh and fruity wines.
