Tim engages in one of his favourite vineyard activities – tasting ripening shiraz in the warm autumn sun. “Beautiful spice exploding in these grapes”. Just what we’re looking for at this stage. Picking is not far off now.
Tim looks at the current condition of the vineyard and reckons “everything is perfectly tuned – we seriously good vintage on our hands.”
Our fearless production winemaker, Bryan Martin, keeps his nerve in the midst of heavy rain and lightning to report on the state of the vineyard and the progress of the 2011 reds. (watch for the flash on the barrels)
