Hats off to our vineyard & cellar teams for another huge week of harvest!
Soon it will be time to unveil our red beauties!
Not only do winemakers know when the grapes are tasting to perfection for picking... the local Silver-eyes, Wattle Birds and Parrot populations (who usually feed off the flowering Marri trees) do too. Like winemakers, they share a keen interest in the sugar levels of the berries which start to accumulate as veraison, the ripening process, happens. It is around this time that the nets are applied to help protect the grapes and they come off just before the hand picking teams come through.
The arrival of the “big day” is quite a ceremonious and exciting occasion!

With vintage about to begin, you may hear the word veraison being bandied about. But what does it mean It’s a French term referring to the grapes changing colour indicating the start of ripening. For winemakers it is a cause for great excitement and a sign the hard work is about to start.
