Adelaide Hill – 2022

A wet winter brought 500mm of rain, followed by a cold, windy and damp spring. Flowering occurred around the end of December. The summer months were mild, humid and cloudy, followed by a cool autumn. The pinot gris from Littlehampton was picked in the second week of March, governed by a late harvest moon, showing excellent aromatics, flavour, acidity and ageing potential.

LENSWOOD VINEYARD – 2022

After two years of regenerating the bushfire affected vines, a wet winter brought 500mm of rain, followed by a cold, windy and damp spring, catching the edge of a serious hail event on 28 October. Flowering occurred around the end of December and was the latest ever recorded at Lenswood, aligning with the harvest moon of Easter falling deep into April. The summer months were mild, humid and cloudy, bringing some disease pressure. Autumn was cool with low light. It was an excellent season for early and mid-ripening varieties such as chardonnay, pinot noir, gewürztraminer, grüner veltliner and riesling allowing slow flavour development and good retention of acidity.
