La Nina, the Negative Indian Ocean Dipole and the South Polar Vortex hate me. It’s mutual. Pax to the marketing departments at Chateau Lafite and Penfolds, but you can’t make a great wine every year. The weather comes into it.
Cool summers mean smaller crops that take longer to ripen. The bushfires did for our 2020 Pinot, which we would have been releasing about now. With one thing and another our wine’s in short supply. So in addition to our usual cases and half-cases, we have added single and double-bottle gift boxes of Pinot, Rose and Chardonnay in various combinations to the Order Wine page.
