And just like that, harvest 2023 has officially come to an end. There has been a lot of activity around here over the past month and a half. Grapes have been hand picked, hand sorted, fermented, pressed, and transferred to barrel.
Many long nights and days of running on very little sleep are all worth it in the end.
The team and vines are now getting a well deserved break as we reflect on what was yet another successful harvest.
We would like to take a moment to say thank you to our incredible, hard-working team. Without them, we would not have been able to complete harvest. They are relentless in their work and show such a passion in what they do. From the pickers, to the tractor drivers, the sorters, all the way through to our cellar team. Each one playing a crucial role in the process. They are the driving force behind the wine we all get to enjoy in the bottle. They will all take a very well deserved rest and get ready to start preparing for the next vintage soon.
Last, but certainly not least, it is important not to forget to pay our respects to our vineyards. We are extremely grateful and privileged to get to work alongside nature. The leaves of the vines have very slowly started to change to the beautiful colours of autumn and now get to rest over the winter months to strengthen for another season.
