V21 has all the hallmarks of a great vintage. This I know is often stated by winemakers, but every now and then a vintage comes along where by the stars align. A below average, cool summer has resulted in vines that are showing very little sign of stress, flowering and fruit set - which is a vital basis on quality. December temperatures were moderate and we only experienced one heat spike in early 2021. A burst of wet weather in mid-March sent slight concerns through winemakers, hoping that the wet weather was transient, luckily it was. Early April has seen beautiful ripening weather, mid to high 20's during the day and cool nights. All varieties are ripening slowly and the flavours are kicking in at low sugar levels - all in all, it looks to be a very good vintage.
