Vintage 2021 update – April

This week sees us heading into the final stages of vintage here in the Barossa with just one Mataro vineyard on the valley floor left to pick. With warm sunny days and cooler nights over the last few weeks resulting in ideal ripening conditions, the region is buzzing with happy winemakers and grape growers alike.
 
This last fortnight has seen the arrival in the winery of our much-prized Centenarian Vine Mataro from Lights Pass, the great news is that yields are higher than last year and the wine is looking fantastic. As ever, Eden Valley plays an important part in the DNA of our wines, we finished picking in Eden Valley just before Easter and the Shiraz from Mt McKenzie and Grenache from Stonegarden in Springton is looking fantastic.
