What a rollercoaster of a vintage so far! A mixed bag of wind, rain, humidity and loads of sunshine for good measure..…a real test of our viticultural skills. So how do we handle such challenging conditions?
Healthy vines are more able to withstand the pressures of disease, an open canopy exposes the grapes to sunshine and wind movement, and only quality bunches are harvested.
To date, we now have both our blocks of Pinot Gris safely in the winery, clean, fragrant fruit to produce our classic varietal. And….yes, the word is out – our first small crop of Chardonnay! Possibly only 50 cases, but we’re super excited about this new addition to the Brick Bay stable of fine wines.
