Our dry winter continues, dispite a very good opening to the season, the rain has not continued as we would like to see. With the vines currently dormant this is not causing any problems yet. However if we do not get substantial rainfall before the end of winter it will impact on the vines once they start to shoot in spring.

This week in the vineyard :
Our contract pruners finished work this week, we will complete the pruning that is left with our own staff. Our cover crops have noticibly started growing. All the frosty nights this season had virtually stopped them growing at all up until now. The almond trees in the Barossa are all in full bloom, there is beginning to be a Spring feeling in the air.
