Regional info

Western Australia experienced an average winter but above average rainfall in Spring 2011. The South West of Western Australia then experienced above average rainfall at the beginning of harvest, combined with above average maximum temperatures and warm nights. The 2012 vintage was the hottest on record in terms of heatwaves, these weather patterns resulted in the harvest of fruit a week ahead of normal as ideal flavour, sugar and acid balance was achieved very rapidly.
