Allan Pankhurst, president of the Canberra District Wine Industry Association President, says there’s been just the right amount of sun and rain to make this year’s crop a rival to the 2008 crop.
Winemakers say well-timed rain and hot weather will result in this years vintage being top class.
A good spring, good moisture followed by drier weather created a good period of fruitset with bunches being well developed and having good numbers of berries per bunch.
The dry weather would have kept bunches small, pushing the quality and number up. Some growers indicate superb fruit yields providing great choice for fruit selection.
