The growing season for the 2012 harvest was wet and the potential for disease was high. The hottest January for many years following the wet conditions resulted in an early harvest. Yields were classic and we started on January 31 and finished by 11 March 2012.
The Cabernet Sauvignon Diana Madeline block was hand harvested with stunning quality on the full moon fruit days of 7 to 9 March (as shown in the photo above). 2012 was a particularly great vintage for our Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
