Rob Gibson provides our 2014 Vintage Report…
Temperatures were cold and frosty in October and November.
Winter was wet but spring and summer were dry and the drought was relieved by 100mm rain over 2 days in Feb when things were looking critical..phew!
Yields were very low (down 30-40%)
These conditions made for lovely varietal expression and balance in Shiraz particularly.
Wine pH’s needed considerable adjustment and may advance development of these wines over time.
