A relatively dry winter and spring, coupled with slightly above average temperatures, indicated an early start to the growing season. Overall warm conditions prevailed with optimal conditions for flowering and fruit-set. Barossa Valley experienced 22 days of temperature greater than 35°C, while McLaren Vale experienced 17 days of temperature greater than 35°C, with a maximum of 42.1°C on January 18th. Coonawarra experienced 13 days over 35°C coupled with below average rainfall. Late flowering and the onset of veraison delayed harvest by a few weeks, a pattern that also played out in Wrattonbully, Padthaway and Robe. The warm autumn conditions leading into harvest ensured cabernet sauvignon achieved ample ripeness with well-rounded tannins and tremendous varietal flavour. All up, an exceptional vintage for cabernet sauvignon
