2013 vintage report for Pemberton (Western Australia)

A hot, dry summer with January temperatures at 3?C above the mean maximum temperature saw fruit being picked up to 10 days earlier than usual in Pemberton.

Whites and reds were both harvested earlier compared with previous years, and reports are that fruit quality is exceptional.

“By all reports, the 2013 vintage was a season of great fruit, great quality and few issues,” said Katie Masters, president of the Pemberton Wine Region Association.

“Standout varieties include Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Noir.”

“The first crop of Pinot Gris from the area was harvested this year, and is a variety that shows promise.”

Some crop levels were down on 2012, but not significantly below the expected yields.
