It was a wild ride to the finish line here in Margaret River!
We harvested our Cabernet Sauvignon over the weekend of the 9th and 10th of April with multiple cyclones brewing off the north west coast. We were fortunate to have our fruit in good condition, with full flavour and ripe tannins ready for harvest. We assembled a small team of locals to assist with our handpick and conditions couldn't have been better, it was clear skies and sunshine until the last bucket was lifted. Cyclone Seroja ended up crossing the coast the following evening, bringing 58mm of rain to the estate over 24hrs. The region experienced one of its most abrupt ends to vintage we can recall. We are very thankful to all those who helped us wrap up vintage 2021.
