It is really a small miracle and with good luck, that a healthy harvest is upon us. Our Petit Blanc was handpicked today, February 22 to kick things off in fashion.
A very wet and cold winter and spring - indeed the wettest November and lowest solar radiation days of a growing season on our record - made for extremely challenging vineyard management and disease pressure conditions.
The hard work and exceptional skill of our Leask Agri team, along with a lot of good humour, has produced a balanced environment without vine stress, and an ideal amount of lovely bunches.
Regenerative Agriculture has once again been the key and we are holding excellent grass cover, organic material, and soil moisture going into the hot spell.
It will be an exciting time again, with two new varieties being picked, Fiano and Vermentino, adding to our white wine range, and a special Mataro block coming back into the fold.
Wish us well and we will make the best possible wines for you all, and have fun along the way.
