Good spring rain ensured dams were full and soil moisture was good until well into January. The typical hot and windy conditions came late January/February. At that stage supplemental irrigation helped to guarantee the vines maintained their leaves and fully ripened the fruit. Another excellent vintage for Chardonnay, Shiraz and selected parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon.
