2022 Vintage Report
Posted 26 May 2022
McLaren Vale experienced a wet winter, but also a mild spring and summer. This created superb ripening conditions from fruit set and flowering through version and ripening. Yields, however, were slightly down across the board.
A civilised vintage created a relaxed picking environment and enabled an ideal balance of sugar ripeness, natural acidity and texture in the resulting wines.
2021 was touted ‘the best quality vintage so far this century’, but 2022 will give it a run for its money.
