The Growing season started well, with winter 2017 rainfall around 10% higher than the average, however both Spring and Summer brought below average rainfall. With the drier soils and warmer on average temperatures for October and November this made for quick vine canopy growth and flowering. January and February remained dry and warm which slowed ripening. Through to March and April temperatures remained average without extremes which gave for ideal ripening conditions to finish off the vintage.
