What is next in the vineyards?

This year we will have a very busy program.

We are planting 6 Ha of vineyard – Chardonnay CY 548, Shiraz SH 470 and SH 1 and Cinsault HE 835. We have been busy preparing the blocks for planting which is due early August 2016. We also have to keep a beady eye on our other young blocks. We have had to put up trellising for a new young Merlot block which we will start to form this year. This time of year we also take care of any sick vines by going through each and every one to look for any disease symptoms. This is to ensure that our vineyards perform at their best and grow old.
