Barossa Valley winemakers expect top drops after dry summer

Barossa Valley wineries and grape growers are harvesting an early vintage with high hopes of top-quality wines after a dry summer. "This year we're well underway — the dry season that we've had really right from winter has meant the vines got away to a good start and they've been growing happily and ripening their grapes," Barossa winemaker Louisa Rose told 891 ABC Adelaide. "It's not the earliest that we've had [but] we've got quite a good crop on the vines this year, despite the dryness."
