Vintage Blog Week 4: Hot temperatures, late nights & a lot of fruit!

Apologies for not giving an update sooner, but this vintage has been one to test the limits of our abilities. Almost 80% of our fruit has come in over the past two weeks, including all the whites and reds at the same time. This is a result of a very warm summer and the heat wave over the last two weeks in this region. The hot temperatures and amount of fruit has pushed our cooling system to the limit which helps regulate the ferment, resulting in late nights closely monitoring tank temperatures. Thankfully the coffee machine has been working very reliably!

To add to this pressure there have been several players sidelined or carrying injuries. Our basket pressing guru, Andy, has powered through a persistent ligament injury in his shoulder. One of our leading hands, Simon, has spent the past week in hospital with a blood infection. I have been on crutches until two weeks ago after having a knee repair done in early January. To add to this, there have been toothaches, skin irritations, and other weird ailments to challenge us. But power on we shall. 

Despite all this we are very happy with the quality of the fruit with beautiful delicate flavours in the Riesling and Chardonnay and lots of richness and spice coming through in the reds. We know all this hard work and sleep deprivation will pay off in several months, after we produce some elegant and classic Great Western wines for you all.

Until next week,

However, you may have heard this type of android apps on media, even though Showbox app has got its own brand name in technical market and entertain people at most within their devices.
