Vintage 2012

Yes it has started!!! And yes, it is frantic.

For those not in WA, we have just had 2 heatwaves in March. And unfortunately it has come right on the cusp of fruit ripeness. To avoid any raisined characters and high alcohols we had to pull basically all our fruit off within a week. There was mayhem and madness for a good 5 days.

But we think we did it. There are some exciting tanks quietly starting their ferments. Though it did take a few +17hr days.. A longer article is promised once I catch up on some zzzz's!

THANKS to everyone - especially Mum - for such a mammoth effort this week!!!!
