Hart of the Barossa is located in the best grape growing region in Australia! The 2012 vintage is underway and we have been blessed with near perfect growing conditions this season.
Temperatures in the mid to high 20's for the last month and a nice sprinkle of rejuvenating rain has meant our grapes have ripened evenly with great flavour intensity. Our harvest is a bit later than in previous years, with only our Rose' and a small portion of Shiraz harvested for 'The Brave' thus far. Over the coming weeks we'll watch the vineyard closely and pick the remaining crop at its optimum including 'The Blesing' Cabernet Sauvignon and 'The Faithful' Old Vine Shiraz.
A big thank you to Wayne Ahrens, a fellow organic grower, and his team of WWOOF'ers, (Willing Workers on Organic Farms); and our family, friends and wonderful customers for their assistance with hand-picking this vintage
