The 2021 Vintage shaped up to be a very good year. The first break of the drought since 2020 brought much-needed rainfall throughout winter, perfect for our whites. The longer ripening period resulted in richer, more flavourful whites, with higher acidity levels and great depth of flavour and colour. Reds also benefited from the extra time on the vine, developing complex flavours and aromas.
