Autumn Newsletter 2017
In the Vineyard
We are in the middle of harvest at the moment, and all is looking great – despite the cool and wet weather we have experienced. Autumn is certainly with us and ripening has slowed down quite a bit. Its looking like harvest will be completed in mid-April.
We are so happy with the quality of the fruit this year. It is disease free, in beautiful condition and has amazing flavours. We have it netted and protected from the marauding birds – its all ours!
This will be the first main harvest for our Arneis and the Marsanne/Rousanne blend and we are so looking forward to seeing these finally being harvested and fermented. Better still – in the bottle! Conditions are generally looking good, although some cooler days and showers are coiming through early this coming week. So here is hoping!

The Canberra District wine industry joined together to produce some fabulous wines to celebrate the Centenary of Canberra. Blended from award winning wineries, the Centenary Riesling and Centenary Shiraz are great examples of the quality wines our region produces. The Centenary Sparkling was made from selected chardonnay and pinot noir fruit from our region and is an oustanding sparkling.
