The 2012 Vintage.
The 2011/2012 season resulted in a small crop of excellent fruit. Winter rains provided good soil moisture and the wet weather continued at the start of the growing season. The rain stopped well in time for flowering, and the ripening period proceeded warm and dry. Considered one of the best vintages on the Mornington Peninsula so far.
