Growers in the Southern Flinders began picking whites on 4 February and reds including Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon on the 14th of the same month.
By 21 February, the harvest at Baroota in the Coastal Plains was complete.
Growers at Bundaleer, near Jamestown, picked about 10 days earlier than usual for Shiraz and two weeks earlier for Cabernet Sauvignon.
Southern Flinders Wine Group secretary Margaret Blesing said the weather was hot with a very dry spring and yields were varied.
Baroota vineyards produced average yields while Bundaleer was about 30% down. One vineyard in the region (plains) did not harvest due to very low yields, she said.
