Vintage

The Winter of 1991/92 was unseasonably dry. This dry weather continued into the Spring with light rain only in April and May. Flowering was earlier than usual in May, with warm weather at the end of the month ensuring a good berry set. A long hot summer was broken by a few heavy showers at the end of August and also September. Picking started a week later than elsewhere in the region, on the 28th of September and was rewarded with a perfectly ripe crop. Vintage notes written on the 10th October reported "The acid balance is excellent and this, combined with high sugar levels and very good colour extraction has resulted in musts of exceptional quality. The weather during the Vintage has been ideal for wine making."
