From about now we start ducking around inspecting the vineyards. There’s been some odd weather; too much rain and humidity, a big hailstorm.
Sidekick Brad here looking at a cabernet vineyard south of Tanunda, not far from St Hallett.
Pretty light crop and showing some damage from the hail. No sign of mildew. Plenty of acid. Not unhappy.
Going to be a late vintage.
