Vintage 2017 in the Winery
With picking well progressed, attention has moved to the winery. The first grapes picked (the old shiraz from home and Grennock), are now resting in barrel having been picked, crushed, pressed and rested before moving into French oak of varying coopers and ages.
The Ebenezer Shiraz was picked last Monday, and the Grenache from Greenock and Mataro from Ebenezer are expected to be picked in the next 2 or maybe 3 weeks.
All and all, the wine gods have been friendly to us this year, lets hope that continues for another 3 weeks until we are all done.
