The Growing Season September to March was cool to mild with temperature index down by 0.4 Deg C. The Growing Season was wetter than average (170%) but nicely spread so no problems resulted from rain events. The vines remained vigorous and delayed harvest because of the abundant soil moisture reserves. Winter (Dormant season) rain was 76mm (45%) above average.
