Hunter vintage wraps up after wet summer

Hunter Valley winemakers have been battling to get the last of their grapes off the vine after a heat wave threatened to impact the quality of the fruit. After a turbulent start to harvest with consistently wet weather, Hunter vignerons have finally wrapped up their annual pick. There was concern heavy rain in January would wipe out much of the vintage, but a spike in temperatures in February allowed some last minute ripening of the grapes.
