Rain, Rain, Rain
Since the beginning of May we have had 613 mm, or 23 inches, of rain, which has saturated our clay soil and is draining only slowly down the slope. Today, 2 October is the first day of warm sunshine, but it will take many more to bring the vineyard back for a good budburst this year. This dramatic photo was taken 1,000 km away in the Barossa, where the result of rain has been much more dramatic! We must keep our fingers crossed!
